Yesterday after lunch, I found myself with thirty more minutes before I was due back at work. It was beautiful outside, so I decided to take advantage of it by going for a nice stroll down Congress.
I love working two short blocks from the Capitol Building.
The Capitol Christmas Tree Lighting is this weekend, so they were getting the tree ready for the event.
I wasn’t able to attend the lighting last year, and unfortunately won’t be able to this year either. But here’s a photo from 2009 courtesy of the Statesman:
Personally, I think the tree could be a little bigger 😉
If you are in the Austin area, it definitely seems worth checking out. Here is the schedule for Saturday:
- 6:00-6:50pm: Holiday Sing-Along
- 6:50-7:00pm: Tree and Congress Avenue Lighting
- 7:00-9:00pm: Holiday Stroll & Performances on Congress
The holiday season is upon us, and I LOVE it 🙂
