Light Display In Austin Makes Wishes Come True
It's nice to come across a story about love and kindness considering all the negativity going around today. As reported KXAN, The Maywalds has raised over $117,000 for the Make-A-Wish Foundation for the past seven years. Jordan Maywald. This year's display is located at 10505 Twilight Vista, between Circle Drive and U.S. Highway 290, and is the biggest ever and is worth the trip!
Back in 2019, the family won $50,000 on “The Great Christmas Light Fight” show. The display this year has expanded to include a snowman made out of truck tires, vintage-glass carolers, a specially-built lighthouse, and a whole lot of decorations.
If you don't feel like making the trip to Austin, we have a great option right here in Victoria. Right on the corner of Mallette and Blyth sits an acre and a half of land once considered just part of the countryside of Victoria.

Friday, December 3rd will begin at 5:30 p.m. Dec. 3 with the lighting of the H-E-B Christmas Tree. The 30-foot animated tree returns for its second year with an expanded setlist. The Annual Lighted Christmas Parade is back in downtown Victoria on Saturday, December 4th. Enjoy the Christmas Tree while enjoying the Christmas merriment of the season!
