AUSTIN, Texas (November 8, 2022) – It’s the most wonderful time of the year! There’s no shortage of holiday cheer, especially here at Circuit of The Americas. For the third year in a row, COTA presents Peppermint Parkway, a holiday extravaganza full of themed entertainment, food, drinks, shopping, and the star of the show: More than 6 million lights!

Top 3 reasons Peppermint Parkway will light up your world

1. Wonder Woods – The brand-new Wonder Woods offers the most affordable holiday trees in Austin! Grab the perfect pine of any shape, size, or price to fit your home and your wallet. It’s never too early to bring holiday cheer to all your senses, with delightful smells and a wonderfully trimmed tree.

2. Candy Cane Cruise – The perfect present for the car enthusiast in your life! Join the ranks of champions for a lap around the only purpose-built F1 track in the U.S. in your own car. Nearly 3-and-a-half miles of tight turns and holiday memories, see what it’s like on the other side of the barriers!

3. Character Meet and Greets – In between trying every fudge flavor in the Sweet Shoppe and sharing all your wishes with Santa, catch Pepper and Mint roaming Peppermint Plaza! Snap a pic with Jolly Old Saint Nicholas himself (Dec. 17-24) or attempt to convince the Grinch to enjoy the holidays (we’ve been trying for years).

While these are only the top three reasons to celebrate the holidays with us at COTA, there’s still so much more to experience at Peppermint Parkway! Light up your night at the top of the Ferris wheel (a moment of peace before the holiday frenzy), smile for photo ops galore for your holiday card (get the spot of honor on Grandma’s fridge), and snag some last-minute gifts at the Holiday Market. Peppermint Parkway is fun for everyone.

Escape the city to see the glowing lands and wintry skies of Southeast Austin in all their glory. Dash(er) on over select nights November 25-December 30. Discover special themed nights and purchase tickets on the Peppermint Parkway website. Be deer or be square!
