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 High Beams installation. Then walk towards the Design Center, stopping for a game of tag around the Fairy Ring Light before seeing The Lighted Cube.

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 Moment at Kingston Connection.

Continue walking to find Kaleidoscopic and Gold Rush at Flower Child. Lastly, make your way towards Cheek's Laboratory at The Pavilion, stopping at the seesaws at Fowler Porch or the free, outdoor hexpong tables at the Urban Design Center along the way.
