Come see the lights on Peacock Lane and you'll
find nothing but good, old-fashioned holiday spirit.
Since the 1920s, each house in this quaint southeast
has been decorating for Christmas. Mostly Tudors, the houses are
adorned with not only beautiful sparkling lights, but also nativity
scenes, rotating Christmas trees and stunningly life-like replicas of
Santa and Frosty.
Be forewarned: this is a very popular Portland tradition and
crowds can get quite thick. It is wise to park several blocks away and
walk, rather than drive through the area. Better yet, take a ride in a
horse-drawn carriage. More info about the carriages is avaiable at
- December 15 and 16 are "Pedestrian-only"
