This time of year Austin is dazzling with light displays and holiday cheer. During the holiday season, Circuit of The Americas transforms into a holiday extravaganza as it's lit up by millions of lights through a one mile driving route. Here's everything we know so far about the 2024 Peppermint Parkway display.

About Peppermint Parkway

Journey through Peppermint Parkway, taking in a mile of over 6 million lights, complete with dancing characters (like Pepper and Mint) to guide you through the course. While the trail is drive through only, all guests have access to Peppermint Plaza after their drive. Visitors can enjoy activities, games, food and more. Everyone can enjoy Pepper's Petting Zoo, with all kinds of cute animals to interact with, or yummy treats like hot cocoa and warm cookies. Little ones will love writing letters to Santa or meeting him in person to submit their wishlist. Plan for enough time to experience it all!
