BOISE, Idaho — One Boise Bench family puts together an orchestrated Christmas lights show that is programmed and synchronized to music, it is truly something to see.

People are welcome to visit the Christmas lights display on Armor Street, it's free and all the family asks in return is to bring some canned goods that they will donate to the Idaho Foodbank.

"I wanted to show my kids how important it is to give back to the community," said Travis Lund. "We collect all the food and deliver it to the foodbank together and see how many pounds we can get, last year we had 89 pounds and this year we are trying to beat that."

Travis Lund spends a lot of time setting up, he told us it took two full weekends to put together 13 different programmable light shows for 13 different songs.

It's Travis Lund's way of carrying on a tradition that he enjoyed with his mother as a kid.

"Christmas is a fun time of year, it's a fun time to give back and spread some holiday cheer," said Lund.
