A Parent's Guide to Rail Trail Lights

Discover something for the kids (and the kids at heart).

Rail Trail Lights is the perfect free family-friendly outing. Discover how to have a day that will entertain people of all ages at the 17-day festival: 

Start your adventure at Atherton, where you can see the Up-Next installation. Stop for a game of tag around the Fairy Ring Light, located at Atherton's lawn.

Stop by Jeni's Ice Cream or Pepperbox Doughnuts for some sugar-based motivation before snapping a pic at the Confetti Hearts Mural. Find kid-approved food at Shake Shack, Blaze Pizza, or Sabor as you walk the Rail Trail towards Oyster Corner at Kingston Connection.

Continue walking to find Fractal Energy at Flower Child. Lastly, make your way towards Leave the Light On at The Pavilion, stopping at the seesaws at Fowler Porch or the free, outdoor hexpong tables at the Urban Design Center along the way.
