37th Street of Lights

Austin people never do anything half-way. They always have to find a way to weird it up a little bit. I guess that’s why they have the saying “Keep Austin Weird”. Well, Christmas lights are no different. Every year the people that live on 37th Street put out their Christmas lights and people drive from miles around to see how they are displayed. They don’t just light up their houses, they use the electrical lines, cars, and anything else they can think to put a light on.

The neighborhood has been doing this since the 80’s and rumor has it that the people that started the tradition have already moved out and they come back every year to decorate since the new people are more yuppified and aren’t as into it. I have no way of knowing if this is true, but it sure makes for a good story.

To get there, you go from Guadalupe and turn on 37th. The Groovy Lube sign will point the way! We drove through, but walking would be much better so you can see the intricacy of all the lights and other displays.
