Peacock Lane Holiday Lights Displays Everything You Need to Know to Enjoy Your Visit to Peacock Lane The holiday season is approaching, and residents of Southeast Portland’s 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.

One of Portland’s most beloved holiday traditions, Peacock Lane residents have been decking out their homes since the 1920s. As with all great traditions, the Peacock Lane event has evolved over time. Due to record breaking crowds in recent years, the Portland Police Department has decided to take a more active role this year in managing vehicle access to the Lane and on surrounding streets. “Our goal is to maximize safety, and anytime the crowds cannot be contained to sidewalks, we will redirect vehicles in order to protect pedestrians and prevent traffic backups throughout the neighborhood,” says Portland Cadet and Reserve Coordinator, Officer John Shadron. Traffic management may include closing the street to motor vehicles, or allowing right turns only onto and from Peacock Lane during peak viewing hours. Peacock Lane residents will be sending out live updates on weather and traffic via Twitter (@PDXPeacockLn) and Facebook (facebook.com/PeacockLn). Visitors to Peacock Lane are encouraged to 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), and view the lights by foot for the best experience. Those visitors who must view the displays from their vehicles are strongly encouraged to join us at non-peak times to avoid possible street closures; we recommend before 8 pm mid-week, or any evening between December 26th and 30th. As always, residents will be serving free hot cocoa and cider from the handmade booth in the center of Peacock Lane. Any optional donations collected at the cocoa booth are used to cover the costs of the event (cocoa and cider supplies, street maintenance and cleanup). In years when donations have exceeded event costs, a donation is made to a local charity selected by Lane residents. Vendors, performers, and other organizations are asked to refrain from soliciting or fundraising during viewing hours. Peacock Lane president Becky Patterson explains, “We’ve always felt that this should be a free event for the community. We will continue to appreciate everyone’s cooperation in keeping Peacock Lane festive and community-focused, rather than a commercial endeavor.”
