Downtown Austin tree lighting and carolsOn December 1st, celebrate the season at the ninth-annual holiday sing-along, tree-lighting, and downtown Austin stroll, led by John Aielli of KUT radio!

This FREE, unforgettable family-friendly event begins at 6:00 p.m. with community caroling on the steps of the state capitol, followed by the lighting of the capitol holiday tree. Afterward, participants stroll down the tree-lit and decorated Congress Avenue and enjoy music, shopping, live music, a holiday farmers market, and more!

Janis K. enjoyed last year’s event. “With the tree safely lit and sing-alonging successfully completed, it was time for strolling,” she said. “The street was filled with bicyclists from the Austin Bike Zoo, plus jugglers, hula hoopers, and stilt walkers.” As the crowd strolled downtown, Janis was surprised by the fun holiday activities along the way. “The Paramount Theatre showed classic Christmas cartoons. Groups performed on small stages. Austin Ballet’s The Nutcracker was projected on the side of a building!”

The Holiday Sing-Along and Downtown Stroll are sponsored by the Downtown Austin Alliance, KUT 90.5 FM, and the City of Austin, and annual attendance is 8,000 to 10,000 people! Remember to bring a non-perishable food item to help your neighbors and support the Capital Area Food Bank. The event is outdoors rain or shine, so dress accordingly.

Be a part of this downtown holiday tradition! Meet at the south steps of the Capitol and Congress Avenue on December 1st. The event begins at 6:00 p.m. and ends at 9:00 p.m.
