AUSTIN -- It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas in Zilker Park.
Austin Energy crews started stringing the iconic Zilker Holiday Tree on Monday. More than 3,000 bulbs will go in on the moontower.
The tree has stood tall in Zilker Park every holiday season since 1967.
The lighting ceremony is set for Dec. 1, followed a week later by the Trail of Lights.
Improvements were announced in September for the Trail of Lights. Learn more here.
