     This year, the Tejas campgrounds are offering even more exciting holiday light displays. Take a walk through a “Winter Wonderland,” “Candy Land,” “Peace on Earth,” “Colorful Creation,” and “Texas Christmas.” Make your first stop the brand-new indoor light show where you will be completely surrounded by lights as you watch a multi-media retelling of the story of Christmas. For those young in body or heart, you can have Christmas stars, candy canes, Christmas lights, crosses, and more painted on your face in the face painting area. Create a memento of this wonderful evening by decorating an ornament to take home with you. Celebrate the true meaning of Christmas at the new birthday party for Jesus. While you’re here, decorate your very own Christmas cupcake!

     Take your family on the 50 foot climbing wall and get the best view of the holiday light show. Zip line across the park or play your favorite midway games. Enjoy your evening jumping, sliding, and screaming for fun in one — or ALL! — of the six bounce houses located on the grounds. There’s even an entire room filled with pool tables, shuffle board, foosball, air hockey and ping pong. 

     As you make your way through the beautiful Christmas lights around the camp, partake in a scavenger hunt seeking out the stars. You can even take hayrides through these magnificent holiday lights. This is one Christmas event in the Austin area you do not want to miss.
