Traffic at Trail of Lights

It’s going to be a busy weekend at Zilker Park as thousands head out there to check out the Trail of Lights but with the masses comes traffic congestion and road closures.

It’s a holiday tradition for many families but getting there can be a struggle because of parking and traffic. This year it may be a little easier and the power is in your hands.

FOX 7’s Nick Spinetto tells you how with a little holiday poem:

The long lines of lights is a sight to see,

Stuck in a crowd of people, or traffic, is one place you don’t want to be.

So download a new app, it for sure is your key,

Real time driving conditions are a guarantee to avoid traffic congestion with glee.

Once there you’ll fine parking with great jubilee.

The best part is did I tell you?

The app is free!

Mario Espinoza says it’s the perfect tool for any Austin Trail of Lights attendee.

Plus information on there can help you avoid an entrance fee.

And that will have everyone yelling yippee!
