[DFW] Dec. 15 - Jeep Convoy through Interlochen
A gal from our JK jeep club has scheduled a convoy through Interlochen to see the awesome Christmas lights display they put on every year in Arlington next Saturday, Dec. 15. All Jeepers (not just JKs) are invited, and she's set up the event on Facebook. You'll need to friend request her to see the event and join, if interested. If you don't feel comfortable doing that, just post here if you'd like to come and I'll put a message on the event page. I've copied the info from the page:
I am putting together something fun for everyone (kids too!). So bring some hot cocoa and a warm cup of Joe! Put on those Santa Hats! IT IS FREE TOO!
Recently I learned about this community called Interlochen that puts on a fabulous display of Christmas lights starting 2 weeks prior to the holiday. I figured this would be fun for everyone. I encourage you to invite friends, family, coworkers, whoever, even a local group of crazy Jeeps would be fun! Harley Davidson out of Bedford is encouraged to come too (Kristin, head this up). The more, the merrier! So spread the word!
Date: December 15th, 2012
Start: Collins & Brown Shopping Center, 2301 North Collins Street, Arlington, TX 76011
Start Time: 6:30pm (Convoy will roll out at 6:45 sharp)
Point of Contact: Jami Killinger
To show the holiday spirit, I am going to hang Christmas lights inside my Jeep, hang some mistletoe, maybe put some antlers on the front, put the top down and remove the doors…Who knows what I will do! I encourage the fun!
Convoy will start at 6:45pm from the parking lot of the address shown above, and head to the Interlochen Christmas Display that starts at the intersection of Randol Mill Road and Westwood Drive in Arlington. I suggest dressing for the weather, bundle the kids up, bring something warm to drink, and enjoy!
Once we are done with the light show, it would be great to enjoy some drinks and entertainment at a local pub or brewery. I am thinking of Humperdinks Brewery that is located near 6 Flags….Entertainment location will be dispersed on location. Suggestions are welcome!
