NOTE PLEASE DO NOT GIVE MONEY TO MUSICANS OR PANHANDLERS THEY ARE NOT SUPPORTED BY THE STREET !!!
Over the years, many visitors from around the world have visited the lights on 34th street and left many messages in the books that the Hosier’s leave on their porch for people to sign and share. The street has been nationally recognized by Nightline, The Travel Channel, the Maryland Lottery, and Home and Garden to name a few. Some of the favorites are the hub cap Christmas tree, bike rim snowmen, overhead trains, and the Big Red Lighted Crab.

How did this get Started?
“I could live on a dead-end street in the desert and still do this." says Bob Hosier the “guy who started this all”. It started back with his humble beginnings when he was a teenager and lived in Northeast Baltimore. He placed a string of lights on a tree in the family yard and the rest was history. Darlene Hughes’s family also decorated her home on 34th street so it only seemed fitting that these two would meet, get married (over 25 Years) and start the tradition that is what everyone now refers to as the "Miracle on 34th Street", which by the way happens to be Darlene's favorite movie along with it is a Wonderful Life.
