Here we are getting close to the holidays. In Lakeway, there is a tradition called The Trail of Lights. This year Rona is not stopping the event. There will be distancing rules, but the trail will go on as usual. The lights go live in November. 20th. I thought it would be fun to go to the site and check out some of the preparations. Then after November 20th to come back and see what it all looks like.
We are going to take the bus and offload in the parking lot. There we will set up the lunch of Five-way Chili, salad, chips, salsa, and queso. We have a beer on tap and soft drinks. Five-way Chili is a Cincinnati original. It is pasta topped with chili, beans, onions, and cheese. Yeah, this is not your low, salt, fat, calorie meal. We also have Chicago for your entertainment.
So let’s get on and get going.
Here is a shot of some of the frames that will hold the lights
Some workers putting the tunnel of lights together.
Here is what the tunnel looks like all lit up. (from last year’s post)
A lonely frame waiting for more.
One of the two large trees.
A shot of the path. The city laid down freshly crushed granite.
The second tree.
More frames and path.
Nothing set up yet.
A machine shot.
A bobcat shot for Dan Antion.
This roller is used to flatten the granite and make the path hard.
Some characters are being set up as well.
Well, that is the tour for the day. I hope you come back when the lights are turned on. Please stay and have more food and listen to Chicago. Have a great week.
