Christmas Lights

I know it's a little late for Christmas lights, but on David's recommendation, Jeff and I went to see the lights at Guadalupe and 37th Street, they did not disappoint. Very weird Austin, funky and fun.these lights were strung across the street
This praying mantis was HUGE!
There was a sign and story in front of this house telling that this was the "spaghetti monster" or something.

With the Pennybacker bridge and a trash bag Colorado River

the Peace Angel

I loved this cool dragonfly
One of my favorite displays was an economic scene

there were parachutes with lights naming CEOs of companies in trouble this one says "Rick Wagoner, Chief Beggar"
Obama pulling up the stock market line
this truck had a reindeer driver and a penguin passenger
milk jug lights
"Bevo's Whiskey River" was another really fun display
Those are all whiskey bottles hanging from the lights

I love the 37th street lights! It's so Austin. I love how they string the lights across the street, and of course the weirdness.

The trail of lights bike ride years ago used to go through 37th, but the ride got too big and now it just goes through the TOL's.

I can't believe I didn't make it to the trail of lights, the Zilker tree, or 37th this year.

Thanks so much for sharing the pics.
