Marv Lima's house on Travao Lane isn't hard to miss during December. You can see it glow from a block or two away. Lima is working on final assembly of his annual Christmas lights spectacular which set to go live Saturday night.
His home and grounds will shine from the light of over 100,000 Christmas lights strung over his home and grounds. In the display are a forest of multi-colored trees, a star of Bethlehem and a 20-foot-tall mega-tree made of tubing and clear lights.
This is the third year Lima has assembled his display and every year it grows bigger. The theft of his truck and a burglary of his home almost stopped him from making this year's show but friends have pitched in to help him assemble the show and keep his Christmas tradition going.
