The 37th street ?Street of lights? phenomenon got its start in 1980 with just fourteen strings of holiday lighting put up by a resident of the now famous street in Austin, Texas. A couple of years later lights were being strung from house to house and the decorations grew into a mammoth interconnected web of themed displays.

Themes this year range from ?alien abduction? to ?under the sea?. The creative efforts of this close knit neighborhood has drawn media coverage from Good Morning America, The CBS Evening News, The Washington Post as well as numerous local outlets across the nation. All of that attention has led to a festival atmosphere complete with snack vendors, musical acts, and of course, a crush of pedestrian and vehicle traffic crawling along the street each night in the weeks leading up to Christmas.

37th street is one of the events that lives up to the motto ?Keep Austin Weird.? is proud to make it just that much weirder by purchasing the decorating rights to a house that would otherwise have been dark this year.
