Deerfield Christmas Lights 2015

The biggest, and arguably best, Christmas lights display in all of Plano is the Lights at Deerfield. The neighborhood has been decorating since back when they were one of the first Plano neighborhoods built north of Park and Preston. Friendly competition between neighbors has turned their tradition into quite the spectacle. Almost every home in the affluent neighborhood is decorated with colorful lights, white lights, twinkly lights, giant inflatables, wooden cutouts, religious displays, candy-themed displays, sports displays, life-size Santas…the list goes on and on.

Carriage rides and segway rides are offered, but book ahead (at the link below). And again this year, visitors are encouraged to vote for their favorite displays by text message.

On the Deerfield website (linked below) there are recommended traffic routes to prevent congestion. And if you choose to visit on Christmas Eve, expect cars to move at a snail’s pace. But it’s all good — the virtual stand-still on the best streets gives you more time for ogling the lights, and perhaps dashing out of the car to take a selfie with a dancing Santa.

New for this year:
The big display on Old Pond Road is back up this year.
Six large reindeer at the Clubhouse grounds, along with a 14ft tree.
The Tree Lighting Ceremony will be held on December 3rd at 6:30pm.

All photos are from the 2014 Christmas season

    We booked a carriage ride for December 24th. They immediately charged our credit card. On December 23rd, DFW Carriages called to cancel our reservation. To date – they have not refunded the $145, they have not replied to multiple emails and did not answer call.
