ARLINGTON - Homeowners in one Arlington neighborhood are gearing up for another week of lines of vehicles driving through their streets.

“Interlochen Lights” is one of the biggest holiday light displays in North Texas. More than 200 residents dress up their houses and lawns with a variety of Christmas lights and other holiday-themed items. The decorations have been a yearly tradition in the neighborhood for over 35 years. The best part of all, it's free to drive through.

"It's a wonderful family event,” said Ralph Sobel, whose front lawn on Porto Bello Court is full of Santa Clauses. “You can load up your van with 12 kids. The back of your pick-up truck is full, and people are staring out of the skylines of their vans and their cars. On a nice night, the convertibles are down."

If you want to see the lights, you are advised to get there early. The lights will be on every night through Christmas Day starting at 7 p.m. The starting point is at Randoll Mill Road and Westwood Drive in Arlington.
