The holiday lights of Las Colinas are back and brighter than ever. The Las Colinas Association has installed over half a million individual lights and placed a herd of reindeer for residents and visitors to enjoy. Beautifully lit reindeer can be seen grazing the trees and monuments along N O’Connor Blvd. and John W. Carpenter Fwy. A map of where to take in these magnificent displays can be found below. The lights will be on until January 8th, so load up the car and head over to one of the brightest holiday destinations in Dallas-Fort Worth.
The reindeer herd tradition was started by the Las Colinas Land Limited Partnership in 1992 and eventually taken over by Las Colinas Association (LCA) in 1998. In the beginning, 18 reindeer were displayed around the famous Las Colinas Flower Clock. The herd migrated across the highway to Island Greens, as they expanded, and then took a hiatus for a few years due to construction on Highway 114. The major construction project left Island Greens without electricity causing the deer to find a temporary home at the LCA headquarters. In 2018, they finally made their way back to Island Greens where they doubled in size. Today, the herd consists of over 80 deer, which includes the most famous one of all, Rudolph the red-nosed reindeer.
