PORTLAND, Ore. - A popular Christmas tradition is back along Peacock Lane in Southeast Portland.

The neighborhood's annual holiday light display is a decades-long custom that began way back in the 1920s and it's become one of the most popular places to visit in the days leading up to Christmas.

Peacock Lane is located between Southeast Stark and Belmont, one block east of 39th, and it's free to visit. The display runs through Dec. 31.

Lots of folks visit Peacock Lane, so plan your trip accordingly. If you want to take a walk down the street, you might have to park some distance away. If you want to treat yourself, though, you can take a carriage ride.
