The Azalea District of Tyler, Texas, will once again host the Azalea District Trail of Lights during Rose City Christmas. You’ve seen the beautiful colors of the Azalea District during the spring; now guests can see the Azalea District come to life with color during the holiday season.

Visitors are invited to enjoy holiday lights and vote for their favorites as they tour the Azalea District. Visitors can ride through the trail at any time or ride an open-air shuttle the first three weekends in December.

“The Azalea District Trail of Lights has seen a lot of growth over the past couple of years,” says Susan Travis, vice president of tourism/servicing for Visit Tyler. “But this year it will be bigger and better than ever.”

Through December 14, Friday and Saturday nights, visitors can let someone else do the driving and ride McC Riders Open Air shuttle through the district. Admission is $10 per person, children 5 and under are free. Catch the shuttle on West Dobbs Street near the Women’s Building.

Join the Azalea District Trail of Lights group on Facebook to participate in other fun activities and to download a map of the trail. Visitors can post a photo of their favorite homes, and a People’s Choice Award will be given to the home that gets the most public votes.

Visitors will also find information on the “Gift Box Hunt.” Large gift box decorations have been placed at six homes. Find them all and turn in the form to be placed in a drawing for a prize.
