During the 1980s, a group of neighbors living on 37th Street gathered together to illuminate the entire street with Christmas lights.
More than 20 years later, though the names and faces may have changed, the residents have kept that tradition alive, transforming 37th street into a holiday wonder.
The decorations are usually over-the-top and funky, staying true to the “Keep Austin Weird” mantra.
Due to the narrow nature of the street and high volume of traffic, 37th Street unofficially becomes one way from Guadalupe Street to Home Street.
Local residents usually have their lights on between 6 and 10 p.m. each night.
