Holiday Light Displays 2014


Where are some of the best holiday light displays in the Dallas area? If you're willing to make a drive, there are some all over the Dallas Fort Worth metroplex and some closer to home. Otherwise, driving around your own neighborhood is sure to give a good show too! Enjoy your McKinney Holiday Light Display especially on the McKinney Historic Square!

Some charge admission, others are free. Some of these are drives through residential neighborhoods like Plano's Deerfield or Arlignton's Interlochen. We've got the list of holiday light displays in Frisco and surrounding areas on AroundTownKids.com!
