River of Lights - 2010

With Thanksgiving behind us, the Christmas season officially begins! Plus, the weather finally got colder, so that always makes it feel a little more like Christmas. A wonderful way to celebrate the beginning of this holly jolly holiday is with a cup of hot chocolate and the Bastrop River of Lights.

The Bastrop River of Lights is a walking trail of lights that features 120 lighted displays and holiday music. This fabulous one-half mile light display is located in Fisherman’s Park and continues down the Colorado River to Ferry Park. Created in 2002 by the Bastrop Chamber of Commerce through the generosity of community organizations and individuals, the River of Lights is a favorite stroll with locals and visitors of all ages.

The River of Lights is open the day after Thanksgiving and every night until New Years Eve from 6pm-9pm. Non-profits and/or civic groups from the area host the trail each night and sell hot cocoa, coffee, cookies, and holiday treats to snack on as you enjoy the trail. For more information about the River of Lights, click here, and for more information about Christmas events and activities in Bastrop this season, visit
