“Deck the block”

The 'Miracle on 34th Street' is a display of holiday lights that takes place annually on the 700 block of 34th street (between Chesnut Avenue and Keswich Road) in Baltimore's Hampden community. The display, which involves the residents of most of the houses on the block, started in 1947, and takes place between late November and early January, celebrating its 64th year this Christmas. The location becomes a major tourist attraction for visitors from all over the world, sometimes drawing more than 1000 visitors on a single evening.   The display prominently features Christmas trees of varying styles, trains, animated figures, Walt Disney cartoon characters, Menorahs, artwork, and other various symbols of the holiday season.

Busy but worth it. Go on a weeknight for the crowds to be lighter. It's a FANTASTIC taste of Baltimore during the holidays. A true holiday tradition. Park, get out and walk around. You'll be able to see more and you can walk into some of the people's houses. One guy's house is a complete art gallery you can walk in and meet him. YOu wont want to miss it!

Super busy. We went on a Saturday and it was packed. I think it would be nicer to go on a weekday when they're aren't as many people. It was tough to walk around.

It's a great holiday themed activity to do a great way to kill a half hour. The street/block isn't as big as I expect but it's very well decorated. Some of the houses let you come up to their porch or inside to their front rooms to see the decorations.

My favorite house was the "house of pleasant living" that was decorated with BOH cans.
