Buda’s senior community and their families are invited to meet up at the Onion Creek Senior Center Thursday, Dec. 9. People meet at the Onion Creek Senior Center, 420 Barton Crossing in Buda, where members of the Lion’s Club will provide refreshments before Trail of Lights senior tourists may board a bus beginning at 6 p.m. Buses will shuttle through the Trail of Lights through 9 p.m. Lions Club members also will help at Stagecoach Park with golf cart transportation.
Businesses, organizations and other groups are working to create festive holiday displays for visitors to enjoy. Display and vendor set up occurs through Sunday, Dec. 5. Details about display requirements can be found at http://ci.buda.tx.us/525/Trail-of-Lights.
Nearly 30 display participants have registered, and the event has four sponsors. “While we have not reached the number of displays that we had pre-COVID in 2019, we still have a lot of interest and a good mix of participants,” said Buda’s Director of Parks and Recreation Greg Olmer. “With the return of walk-through viewing, we expect this year’s event to be a crowd pleaser.”
