History of the Pastega Christmas Light Display


From 1981, Mario Pastega had Ole Brendstall create Christmas scenes and the place them in the field surrounding the PepsiCola Bottling plant. For the first 10 years, Alma Pastega would select the characters for display. Ole and Alma would cut the characters out and Alma would paint them by hand. Since then, scenes and characters were added each year and community members contributed their displays. When Mario passed away in 2012 and the firm was sold, it was evident to the Pastegas that they wanted to continue the Christmas display. Community outreach had individuals or families adopt the weather beaten pieces and return them refurbished to the new home of the display to Benton County fairgrounds on 53 rd St. Since the beginning Pastega Christmas display continues to survive and thrive with the help of many volunteers and businesses in our community who have given of their time and talents as well as donations of money and/or materials. Although our display is FREE and non-commercial, we are encouraging canned food donations for the needy in our local communities.
