Walk the dog and the Tinsel Trail in Downtown Huntsville

Get in the holiday spirit with a walk through Tinsel Trail with your best four-legged friend. The Tinsel Trail is a holiday showcase in Big Spring International Park starting November 27 made of hundreds of locally decorated live Christmas trees. You may see a tree decorated completely by children’s art or one inspired by Star Wars (we are the Rocket City, after all). There are several decorated with traditional Christmas decorations and others decorated with unconventional products.

Every evening the trees light up the park from dusk until midnight. It’s a magical sight. So grab a cup of hot chocolate, stroll through the Tinsel Trail, go skating in the park and soak up the holiday season.
