The Bastrop River of Lights walking trail is located in Fisherman’s Park and continues all the way down the Lower Colorado River to Ferry Park, about a half mile. It started in 2002 with over 100 sponsors for displays the first year. Many individuals opted to sponsor a memorial or honorarium for a loved one or to just cover one of the beautiful trees in the Park with lights. We have about 20 groups that come down and build their own display each year. The River of Lights is open the day after Thanksgiving and every night until New Years Eve from 6 – 9 PM. Non-profits and/or civic groups from the area host the trail each night and use the event to spotlight their mission or to sell treats to raise money or just to visit with those who come to walk the trail. Snow Day in Bastrop takes place Saturday, December 3rd. Snow Day will be held in Fisherman’s Park from 1:00 pm to 7:00 pm. Delight in the wonder of winter, hot chocolate, and end the day with a holiday-themed film! This is a FREE, community event!
