Photo gallery: Lights at Interlochen in Arlington
It's like a party where the guests mingle on wheels and shout "Merry Christmas" to passersby.
The Lights at Interlochen is a fun and festive way to count down to Christmas. Hundreds of houses in Arlington are decked out in holiday glitz as the famous neighborhood plays host to thousands of cars streaming through.
You'll find inflatable nativity scenes, Santas on boats and motorcycles, wooden cutouts of the Peanuts gang, gingerbread men, lighted wire reindeer, angels, and pink flamingos. The spectacle seemed to fascinate visitors, many who make it a tradition to return year after year.
When you go, pack some patience, because it's the Six Flags of Christmas: You'll find long lines and, um, glow sticks.
Passersby seemed full of good cheer, especially the kids who got to stay up past their bedtimes to ooh and aah for hours. For anyone who's got a little bah humbug, a visit to Interlochen will put some ho ho ho into your ho-hum.
