Arlington's Interlochen Ready for Christmas



    Arlington's Interlochen Ready for Christmas

    The City of Arlington is ready for the annual holiday lights tradition in the Interlochen neighborhood.

    Beginning Saturday, Dec. 14, the Arlington Police Department will assist with traffic flow through the neighborhood between 7 p.m. and 11 p.m. each night through Christmas.

    For several decades, hundreds of homes in the northwest Arlington neighborhood have adorned their homes with seasonal displays primarily focused on Christmas and Hanukkah.

    Police again expect thousands of spectators each night, including tour buses, to arrive from all over North Texas and the state.

    Admission to the display is free.

    • From Randol Mill Road: Enter at Westwood Drive. (See the attached Interlochen Map.)
