Lights at Interlochen Starts December 15
A Popular Holiday Tradition Continues in Northwest Arlington

Interlochen is ready to glow.

One of the largest holiday light displays in north Texas comes to life on Saturday, December 15 when more than 200 Interlochen homeowners dress up their homes and lawns with Christmas lights and an assortment of holiday-themed displays.

The annual slow drive through this northwest Arlington neighborhood will be daily until 11:30 p.m. through Christmas Day.

To help facilitate safe travel in the area, the Arlington Police Department is establishing traffic control posts in the neighborhood and asking motorists to enter from Randol Mill Road at Westwood Drive, said Traffic Commander Lt. Craig Taylor.

Interlochen Entrance and Exit Routes:

  • Motorists should enter the Interlochen neighborhood from Westwood Drive at Randol Mill Road.
