There's something about looking at beautiful Christmas light displays on Thanksgiving Weekend that really gets you in the spirit. Here's a list of a few of the more famous Twin Falls area Christmas light displays that are opening on Thanksgiving weekend.
Orton Botanical Garden - Starts November 24, 2023
Orton Botanical Garden is a non-profit garden that is quite spectacular on its own year-round, and the garden becomes even more phenomenal when it lights up every Christmas.
The display at Orton Botanical Garden starts November 24, 2023, at 6:00 pm and is open every evening from 6:00 pm - 9:00 pm through December 30. There's a total of five acres that you can walk through with more than 200,000 lights on display. The display is free but there is a suggested donation of $5 per person or $15 per household. Donations go towards keeping the garden and the display funded.
Grandview Drive - Twin Falls
This private residence display is right around the corner from Orton Botanical Garden on the corner of North Grandview and Wirshing Ave. This private display is a ton of fun and most years they offer hot chocolate and bonfires on Saturday evenings.
Casperson Family Christmas Lights at First Federal Park
Formerly known as the Curry Crossing lights, the Casperson Family light display has always been a family favorite. The display was recently moved to the Sunway Soccer Complex in Twin Falls and is a great option for those with accessibility issues. The lights at First Fed Park are best viewed while driving by in your car.
The Casperson FAmily display, now sponsored by First Federal opens up on Thanksgiving night and runs from 6:00 pm - 10:00 pm every night throughout the season.
