Coming Up: Huntsville’s 10th Annual Tinsel Trail

Huntsville's 10th Annual Tinsel Trail

One of the city’s most popular holiday traditions returns the day after Thanksgiving! Huntsville’s 10th Annual Tinsel Trail will have Big Spring Park in downtown aglow with more than 300 extravagant decorated trees.

What’s the Tinsel Trail?

Located at 200 Church St., Big Spring International Park East comes alive each December with the spirit of Christmas. A local business, organization, or family sponsors each live tree. The sponsors then either decorate the trees themselves or they are matched with a volunteer nonprofit group that handles the decorating.

The event is organized by Downtown Huntsville, Inc., as a way to promote collaboration and community, and bring a little extra bustle to downtown. Part of their mission is to revitalize Downtown Huntsville through dynamic events, promotions, and redeveloped properties. Be sure to follow the Tinsel Trail page for the latest news.

Huntsville’s 10th Annual Tinsel Trails kicks off Friday, Nov. 27, and is on display through Sunday, Jan.3. The park is open daily, and the festive trees are lighted from dusk to midnight. It is a free event open to the public. Parking is available along Williams Avenue and Church Street as well as the parking garages at Summit/PNC Building and Von Braun Center.
