Kreische Brewery Trail of Lights

Tuesday, December 2nd, 2008

Passport to Texas from Texas Parks and Wildlife

There is something magical about how stars peer through the bare branches of trees in winter. Kreische Brewery State Historic site in La Grange duplicates this celestial wonder during its annual trail of lights.

The park is lit up with very beautiful lights all around the trail—it’s about a quarter mile walking trail, including a trip through the house—the old Kreische House—where we have entertainment, and refreshments, and Santa Clause is here; and all the families and kids can come and enjoy a beautiful setting for a Christmas Celebration.

Site superintendent, Dennis Smith, says the park’s location adds a special aspect to the experience.

Our park sits on a 200-foot bluff that overlooks the river and overlooks the City of La Grange. And just the night view from up here, looking over down to La Grange, and the beautiful setting of the lights in the park are absolutely spectacular.

A generation of Texans has enjoyed this holiday event, and so can you.

Our trail of lights program is open to the public on December sixth, twelfth, thirteenth, nineteenth and twentieth. There’s a cost: three dollars per person thirteen years old and older, and one dollar for children between the ages of three and twelve.

Children under the age of three get in free. Visit for ways to light up your holiday season.

That’s our show… For Texas Parks and Wildlife…I’m Cecilia Nasti.
