It's normally chilly during Luminaria, especially if you are a Texan! We always bundle up since the festival is mostly outdoors. If you'd like to dress up with lights and art on your outfit, we highly encourage you! We have a contest called "Light Up the Night" and you could win a prize for your creative outfit!
