Anyone that lives in Lost Creek knows it is special.   One way our neighborhood is unique in Austin is our annual Lost Creek Trial of Lights that has been a neighborhood tradition for over 40 years.

What started in 1983 on a single street by residents June and Harlan Cooper, The Lost Creek Trail of Lights has grown to hundreds of trees spread around the entire neighborhood.  

The trees are especially enchanting due to the uniformity of tree size, placement in yards and lighting.  Traditionally, the trees have been placed in the front yard less than 10 feet from the curb and wrapped with multi-colored C-9 lights.

For the past six years, the Lost Creek Dads Club managed the purchase and delivery of these trees.   The LCDC has donated 100% of net proceeds to various Central Texas charities resulting in over $50,000 has been donated to organizations like Make-A-Wish.  These donations have sent three children to Disney Theme Parks and Hawaii.  This year, we will once again donate 100% of net proceeds to Make-A-Wish.


While we love how the neighborhood has looked in the past and how much good we have done for these kids in need, this year we think The Creek can do more.  Wouldn’t it be great to see 500 trees sold that not only show Austin the awesomeness of Lost Creek, but would allow us to deliver the wish of TWO or more very deserving children?
