River of Lights - 2014

Join the Bastrop Parks & Recreation Department for the official lighting of the River of Lights at Fisherman's Park on Saturday, Dec. 6th, starting at 3pm. Play on a snow-covered hill (that's right--I said SNOW!), enjoy a cup of hot chocolate while roasting marshmallows, and watch "Arthur Christmas" as snowflakes flurry through the air.

Bastrop's River of Lights is a walking trail of lights that features 120 lighted displays and holiday music. This festive 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, the River of Lights is a holiday favorite for locals and visitors of all ages.

This year, the River of Lights is open every night from Dec. 6th until New Years Eve from 6pm-9pm. Local nonprofits, civic groups, and businesses host the trail each night and sell hot cocoa, coffee, cookies, and holiday treats to snack on as you enjoy the trail.
