More Zilker tree time, please

Austin American-Statesman - - VIEWPOINTS - Tru­man Trekell Austin

Fi­nally, a fo­rum where I can make my Christ­mas wish known! I wish the city of Austin and Austin En­ergy would light the Zilker Park moon­light tower Christ­mas tree for early morn­ing com­muters who travel from North Austin into work down­town. Liv­ing north of down­town, we never get to en­joy the tree as we did in years past. I sup­port sav­ing en­ergy, but if the city is go­ing to go to the ef­fort to re­con­struct the tree each year for the en­joy­ment of its ci­ti­zens, why not light it for the en­joy­ment of as many of its ci­ti­zens as pos­si­ble?

The Zilker Park Christ­mas tree is a huge at­trac­tion across the street from the Trail of Lights in Austin.
