After the power was switched on to all the lights that are decorating Steelhead Park many made their way through the park to enjoy the twinkle and set up of the lights. (Angelique Houlihan photo/Houston Today)

The Christmas Light Up event is held annually. The lights are appreciated by railway passengers from the train tracks that run along the north side of Steelhead Park as well as traffic passing by on Highway 16 that runs on the south side of the Park. Houston is well known for producing this beautiful display.
