The holiday season is approaching and residents of SE Portland’s Historic Peacock Lane are 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, there is no admission charge to view the lights. 

Lights are on December 15-31, from 6-11 pm Pedestrians Only Nights are Sunday, December 15-Monday, December 17.

Free Cocoa and Cider at the Cocoa Booth December 15-24, 6 pm until sold out, generally around 8 pm. 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 locally to Morrison Child and Family Services – SAGE.

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 or public transportation (TriMet buses 15, 75, and 20 have stops within a few blocks; trimet.org/go/cgi-bin/plantrip.cgi). Please be respectful of neighbors when parking in the area. Note: Do not park in Walgreens lot – they maintain their lot for their customers only.  

Peacock Lane thanks their community partners–Volunteers of America for mixing and delivering cocoa and cider daily and the Sunnyside Neighborhood Association and SE Uplift for ongoing logistical support every year. 

In the event of additional, unplanned closures due to large crowds, updates will be posted to Twitter, FaceBook and peacocklane.org pages. 

Those who must see the lights from a car are encouraged to check online before visiting.
