Happy Christmas Eve, dearest northeast Johnson Countians!

Prairie Village’s claim on the Christmas Capital of Kansas City may have taken a hit in recent years with the departure of Tim Dorr’s choreographed lights display to Olathe and the end of Mike Babick’s wild house decorations, but the city’s original Christmas decorations attraction is still going strong.

A tradition since 1958, the residents of Outlook Lane off 79th Street¬†have turned their normally quiet cul-de-sac into a Christmas wonderland every holiday season for nearly 60 years. Here’s a look at some of the unique holiday decorations on display:
