Max Casperson’s “Twin View Lane” Light Display Continues
First Federal Bank today announced a beloved local tradition will continue for Magic Valley residents. Max Casperson’s light display on Twin View Lane has delighted families for two decades.
Max Casperson began his display after 9/11 with a simple sign reading “God Bless America” lit for the holidays, displayed up high on his barn for all to see. The collection grew each year to become large enough to take up most of the street and was even featured in USA Today’s Most Outrageous Christmas Lights.
The display took Max and two helpers a full month to set up, but Max knew it would be too much this year. So, Max and his son reached out to First Federal Bank and asked the Bank to keep the tradition alive. He donated the full display with the promise that First Fed would preserve this beloved family tradition, making it available for the community to continue to enjoy. Knowing how much this display means to the community, First Federal Bank was happy to step up and are thrilled to announce the light display will continue … just in a new location.
Sadly, Max passed away in April, but his obituary eloquently described his light display: “The Casperson Christmas Lights on Twin View Lane was his ultimate gift to the community. Beginning in 2001, he spent countless hours designing and creating light displays that each had a meaning and purpose he wanted to share with others. His desire to share the true meaning of Christmas with everyone has blessed the community and brought joy to many.”
Each year, Max proudly lit his display on Thanksgiving and First Federal will do the same. First Federal is proud to present Casperson Family Christmas at First Federal Park, located in the Sunway Soccer Complex, E 2700 N, Twin Falls. The display will be lit every evening from Thanksgiving evening through New Year’s.
