This year’s Capital Holiday Lights in Washington Park marks a major milestone for PAL.
continued PAL is able to keep the light display interesting because, while PAL owns 60 percent of the display, 40 percent is leased. The leased lights change each year so people will get plenty of variety from year to year.
At the end of the light display, which runs 2 miles through Washington Park, people are invited to stop in the Lake House to check out the crafts or have refreshments. Children will be able to visit with Santa through Dec. 23. The display will be up through Jan. 3.
On Wednesday nights, there will be reindeer, as well as people dressed as different characters like Elmo or Winnie the Pooh
The hours are Sundays through Thursdays from 6 to 9 p.m. and Friday and Saturday from 6 to 10 p.m. Admission prices are $15 per car, $25 for 10-18 passenger vehicles and $75 for buses. Carriage rides are also available Wednesday through Sunday evenings.
“It’s a great way to build on tradition and give back. It goes with the holiday spirit,” said Ricchiuti.
