LIGHT UP THE LAKE
Round Rock, TX is one of the fastest-growing and best-managed cities in the country. Old Settlers Park is huge: 640 acres of trails, sports fields, and its own scenic lake. When Round Rock asked Austin Event Lighting to illuminate an entire lake, we were instantly interested. And the timing could not be any better....
Light at the End of the Tunnel
"Old Settlers Park offers ample event space featuring 24 acres and a mile-long trail around bright lake, perfect for social distancing."
Austin Event Lighting withstood COVID-19 by adapting and incorporating the "New Normal" into events. The concert space provided our festive visitors the safe distance they needed without dimming our spirits. We used LED strips and twinkle lights to guide guests through the park. Like the floor decals at HEB, pointing us through 2020, but more festive! Everyone needed a little holiday spirit by December of that year...
But LED strips aren't enough!
A lot goes into an event this big...
