You get one cold front, and all of a sudden it's time to plan for the holidays. Tickets for the 2019 edition of Austin's Trail of Lights are now on sale.

A holiday tradition for locals, the Trail of Lights in Zilker Park is an annual (well, minus that brief period when it was out of commission) walk through colorful light displays, with food, live music and more on tap, too.

The trail will be open 7 to 10 p.m. nightly Dec. 10-23. General admission to the trail is free Dec. 10-12 and 15-18. A $5 gate fee is required Dec. 13-14 and 19-23. You can also buy a $20 ZIP pass to skip lines and get early entry some nights. VIP packages are available, too, as well as paid parking and shuttle options. Go to austintrailoflights.org to browse the different ticket packages available. 

We can taste the hot cocoa now.
