Last weekend to visit Old Bethlehem—but Highland Lakes holiday twinkles on!

The final of two weekends in Old Bethlehem  is Dec. 14-16 in Burnet.

Main Street Bethlehem comes to life as volunteers from the First Baptist Church of Burnet don period costumes to give visitors a taste of life at the time of Christ’s birth. A visit to Bethlehem includes street vendors, craftspeople, shepherds and a live nativity scene. The church is located at 108 S. Vanderveer St. The event runs from 6-9 p.m.

Be sure to come prepared because the event packs the town. Call (512) 756-4481 or visit www.fbcburnet.org.

Walkway of Lights

In Marble Falls, visit the annual Walkway of Lights, which has been expanded this year to include more than 2 million lights! Tens of thousands of visitors come each year from across the country and even around the globe to walk winding pathways through seasonal sculptures and light tunnels on the shores of Lake Marble Falls at Lakeside Park, 307 Buena Vista Drive.

As you drive into Marble Falls from the south on U.S. 281, you’ll catch your breath when you top the hill and see the grand glitter of twinkling lights on the lake below. On site, you can sip a cup of hot chocolate or grab a snack. The Walkway of Lights gleams nightly until 10 p.m. through Jan. 1. On Thursday, Friday and Saturday nights until Christmas, the Jolly Ol’ Elf himself often makes an appearance for pictures. For more, go to www.marblefalls.org or call (830) 693-4449.

From now until Christmas and New Year’s Eve, there’s plenty of holiday fun in the Highland Lakes.
