Pirate yard.

Folk Art House

This house used to have seasonal folk art decorations out front, but since the pandemic started, they appear to have gone all-in with year-round decorations that mash up different seasonal themes with other themes, such as Disneyland, aliens, politics, etc. Things are always changing here, so there's always something new to see. Best to view from the street and not disturb the residents.
