MARBLE FALLS — With only a week until the 21st annual Walkway of Lights opens, organizer Amy Lee is scrambling to find enough volunteers.
“We have 125 trees coming in (Nov. 17) and we could really use some help setting them up and decorating them,” she said. “And we have less than a day to set them all up because on (Nov. 18) the Walkway starts.”
Lee said there are slots still open for greeters from opening day until the last day on Jan. 1.
Every year, thousands of visitors meander through the more than 2 million lights and 160 light sculptures at Lakeside Park, 306 Buena Vista Drive. Organizers began setting up the display in late October.
Last year, an estimated 52,000 visitors saw the Walkway, which is erected on the shores of Lake Marble Falls. Some hailed from as far away as Australia.
This year, officials said the Walkway likely will have more viewers because Austin is again canceling the Zilker Park light display.
