Vandalism At Albany’s Washington Park Holiday Display

Mark Nolan, Getty Images News

It’s sad to see a story like this the day after Christmas, but YNN is reporting that someone vandalized several holiday lights between Friday night and early Saturday morning at the Hannaford Capital Holiday Lights display in Washington Park.

YNN says Lenny Ricchiuti of the Albany Police Athletic League, which helps put on the display, puts early estimates of damage at $30,000. Corporate sponsorship signs within the display were sprayed with graffiti messages saying things like “stop corporate greed” and “don’t shop at Wal-mart.” Electrical cords were cut on many displays, which means they will have to be rewired.
