Azalea District Trail of Lights
You’ve seen the Azalea Trail District during the spring, now experience one of Tyler’s most beautiful neighborhoods lit for the holiday season in an event we’re calling the Azalea Trail District Trail of Lights. Throughout December, take a self-guided tour through this historic district and see the homes in all of their holiday glory.
Share your photos of the Trail and vote for your favorite homes on our Facebook Group!
If you live in the Azalea District, you are encouraged to participate by decorating your home for the holidays. There will be a Homeowner’s decorating contest with a chance to win one of 3 prize baskets valued at approximately $900 each as well as a People’s Choice winner who will receive a $1,000 cash prize! You must register your house in order to participate in the competition.
