Austin Energy workers make their annual trek to Zilker Park to install the Zilker Christmas Tree atop the  moonlight tower. In what has become an Austin institution, the Zilker Park Tree Lighting is an annual event that ushers in the Holiday season and usually takes place the first weekend in December. Paul Peterson has the task of securing the many colorful lines to the top of the tower in what looks like a maze of bulbs.
