The year 2020 has been far from ordinary, so why not do something equally unexpected this holiday season? New destinations and novel attractions offer ways to break from tradition and try something different.
If you enjoy light shows but have had enough Christmas lights, head to Bee Cave just west of Austin for the inaugural Bee Cave Buzzfest, a free light spectacular presented by the Bee Cave Arts Foundation at Hill Country Galleria. The show runs Dec. 17-19 from 6 p.m. to 10 p.m., and unlike typical holiday light shows, this one takes its inspiration from the glowing creatures of the deep sea. Six interactive displays by national and local artists alike use digital light effects, original music, and even augmented reality to illustrate the theme of “Ocean of Bioluminescence,” with special live performances taking place on the plaza each night at 7 p.m. and 8:30 p.m.
