Who hasn't heard of Miracle on 34th Street?

For over 60 years, Baltimore has had its own Thirty-Fourth street and each Christmas season, this Hampden neighborhood block, is turned into a miracle of sorts. If you are in or near Baltimore, this is something not to be missed.

Amazing what one block of Baltimore row homes owners can do! Here is a pictorial glimpse into this Baltimore tradition.

Did you know that Christmas trees can be made out lots of materials, including hub caps, vinyl records and bicycle wheels?

Only in Baltimore will one find a Christmas scene with the likes of ..Natty Bo, the crab and a tree made out of  cans of beer and Old Bay Seasonings.

         Season's Greetings!                                                The Disney characters were on hand for the festivities!

....and few more familiar faces..like the Grinch, Charlie Brown, Lucy and that famous Baltimore crab!

With so many cars parked and stopped in the road, it was hard to get full photos of the entire block.

                                                                                                    And another crab, this time made out of wrenches.

Hi Margaret...Baltimore certainly does have its Miracle on 34th Street.  (That is a great movie.)

Your photos would make a wonderful slide show with bigger pictures.  You did a marvelous job getting these shots.

It is a tradition to visit this area every year. It is fun to take out of towners for the first time.

Wow, is this neat.  A great idea, too.  it's too bad our streets only go to 29th here in CB.  What a great tradition.  Thx for sharing the pics. :)
