Moonlight Tower from Dazed and Confused

The Moonlight Tower is decorated as an amazing Christmas tree in December, just after Thanksgiving. It's good luck, and lets face it, a lot of fun, to stand at the base under the tree and spin while looking up at the amazing spiral of lights!

Trippy!

Moonlight Tower from Dazed and Confused

If you're a fan of the movie it's even cool to see the Moonlight Tower during the day. Drive slow, because you may just miss it if you don't.
