The holiday season is approaching, and residents of Southeast Portland’s Historic Peacock Lane are once again planning their legendary light displays. One of Portland’s most beloved holiday traditions, Peacock Lane residents have been decking out their homes for decades.
As always, Peacock Lane does not charge an admission fee to view the lights, and asks that groups and individuals help to keep the event commercial-free by not passing flyers or soliciting visitors for sales or donations.
Lights on December 15th-31st from 6 to 11 PM
PEDESTRIANS ONLY December 15th, 16th, and 17th (Friday, Saturday, and Sunday)
In the event of additional, unplanned closures due to large crowds, updates will be posted to Twitter, FaceBook, and peacocklane.net pages. Those who must see the lights from a car are encouraged to check online before visiting.
Free Cocoa and Cider
Cocoa booth open December 15th-24th, 6 PM until sold out
Cocoa and cider are provided free of charge, but donations of cash and canned goods are accepted at the cocoa booth when open. This year a portion of cocoa booth proceeds will be donated to Meals on Wheels.
Transportation and Parking
Traffic can become quite heavy in the area during the lights season. Visitors to Peacock Lane are encouraged to view the lights by foot, if possible, for the best experience. Utilize free street parking several blocks away (do not park in Walgreens lot) or public transportation (TriMet buses 15, 75, and 20 have stops within a few blocks; http://trimet.org/go/cgi-bin/plantrip.cgi). Please be respectful of our neighbors when parking in the area.
Peacock Lane would like to thank:
Boyd’s Coffee and Tea for generous donation of coffee and cider supplies
Volunteers of America for mixing and delivering cocoa and cider daily
Waste Management for donation of products and services to help manage neighborhood litter
Sunnyside Neighborhood Association and SE Uplift for ongoing logistical support every year
