Portland Walking Tours

Peacock Lane Opens Tonight!

December 15th, 2011

This evening, take a walk along one of Portland’s most unique and revered holiday traditions – Peacock Lane.

Peacock Lane is a festival of lights put on every December by residents of the strip formerly known as SE 40th Ave between SE Stark St. and SE Belmont St.

Neighbors on this street put on an amazing celebration of the season by decorating their houses and front yards with elaborate and varied displays of Christmas lights, each as unique as the residents of the homes themselves.

The best way to see the display is on foot. And for the first two evenings – December 15 and 16 – it’s the only way to see it, as cars are not allowed on Peacock Lane from 6-11 PM either night.

The second-best thing about this event is that it’s FREE.

The best… well, that you’ll have to see for yourself.
