We can't believe Winter Lightfest 2019 has come to a close! The magic you saw in the park would not have been possible without Matt Robinson, Doug Jones, and the entire team at Christmas Decor by Lone Star Electric and Lone Star Electric. We're thankful for the months of work and sacrifices made by Matt and Doug (and their spouses Paige and Carolyn) to bring this event to life for the Abilene community! Our hats are off to our many volunteers, our generous sponsors, and our United Way of Abilene family and spouses. Your support of Winter Lightfest means great things will happen for children, families, and seniors at United Way's community partner programs in 2020!

Winter Lightfest is CLOSED, for ONE night, Saturday, Dec 28.

We will open for our LAST night on Sunday, Dec 29.

The wet conditions in the parking lot areas would be unsafe for our guests and cause damage to the beautiful area on loan to us from the Volunteer Service Council of the Abilene State Supported Living Center. Thank you for understanding and we hope to see you Sunday night, Dec 29th.

What is Winter Lightfest?

United Way of Abilene is pleased to bring Winter Lightfest presented by Christmas Decor to our community in 2019. The Winter Lightfest trail is a 3/4 caliche walking trail with iconic displays and breathtaking light features in beautiful Centennial Park. Centennial Park is located on East South 27th Street between Maple Street and Oldham Lane.

Bundle up and enjoy the beautiful nature in Centennial Park as you stroll through the tree lined paths lit with thousands of twinkling lights and breathtaking animated displays! Stop in Christmas Village for refreshments and activities. Listen to the joyful sounds of local choirs and music groups as you travel the trail. Don’t forget to bring your camera to capture your family at our several photo ops.

Winter Lightfest will be open Thursday through Sunday from November 28 through December 29. Gates open at 5:30 p.m. each night and last admission will be granted at 9:00 p.m. Gates close at 10:00 p.m. Your support of Winter Lightfest directly benefits United Way of Abilene’s community investment in local non-profit programs.

Winter Lightfest pricing for adults is $10, youth up to 12th Grade with School ID are $5, and children under 2 are always free with a ticketed adult. Special pricing of 20% off available when purchased online, in advance for groups of 20+.

What a wonderful place to bring the family. Please, please do this again next year. Thank you all so much for bringing this to our small town.
Hey how about you open the gate! You must be ignorant for closing “due to weather”. Your stinking website is awful and uninformative. You couldn’t even think to post the closing on it and why is your telephone off the hook?
Save y'all some headaches. They are not open tonight! :(
Went to see the lights tonight and there closed!?!? 😒
Regina Leuthauser Thompson
Can you pay with debit at the gate?
Rachel Scherwitz this is what I was trying to tell you about.
Where do you purchase tickets
Is this pet friendly ?
You guys will be open the Thursday and Friday after Christmas (26th & 27th), correct?
Amber Harp Massey
She said YES ♥️
