Keeping Austin Weird For The Holidays
It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas along Loop 360 as northwest Austin residents decorate hundreds of trees.
This is Austin’s very own way to keep the city weird.
Legend has it that more than a decade ago one family started the tradition by decorating a tree when no one was watching. Since then it has caught on. More than 100 trees are wrapped with garland, ornaments and whatever people can find.
You will see peace signs, candy canes and bright colors. Each tree is as different as the Austin residents.
The city asks if you do decorate a tree to clean it up after New Years.
