Mozart’s Free Holiday Light Show on Lake Austin

The lights and music are cued up for Mozart's annual Holiday Light Show

Mozart’s Free Holiday Light Show on Lake Austin

The new and improved 12-minute show features over 150,000 LED lights, dancing snowmen, angels, and a burnt orange Bevo all synchronized with holiday tunes.

It plays at the top of every hour from 6pm- midnight every day until January 1, 2013. Offering on-site roasted coffee, hot chocolate, tea, and baked goods for 19 years and counting, Mozart’s Coffee Roasters is a local lakefront favorite. Their enormous patio and welcoming interior make a great spot to hang out and enjoy this unseasonably warm December with friends and family.

Mozart’s also created a handy map of some of the best Christmas light displays around the city, available at AustinChristmasLightsMap.com. And what’s Christmas without a little friendly competition? Mozart’s and Hula Hut are sponsoring a photo contest seeking entries “All About Texas Christmas Lights.” Entries are due December 18 and prizes will be awarded December 20. ‘Tis the season, y’all.
