Since 1997, Albany’s historic Washington Park is transformed into a wonderland of lights reflecting “The Magic of the Season” for the Annual Capital Holiday Lights. The Lakehouse at the end of the journey will feature face painting, balloon sculptures, a craft show, refreshments and, before Christmas, Santa Claus! Since it began, the show has welcomed more than 1 million visitors to a wondrous world with thousands and thousands of lights. Some of the Displays: See Santa on vacation -- playing golf and volleyball, water skiing, and even riding a Harley. -- Watch Santa and his elves at work in Toyland, getting toys ready for good girls and boys. -- Visit with America’s heroes -- police, firefighters and others who contribute to the welfare of all. -- Experience a Victorian holiday with shoppers strolling to stores, chestnuts roasting and much more as we travel back in time. -- And, take a trip around the world with the message of Peace given in many languages with a glimpse of how the holidays are celebrated in faraway places. Carriage rides through the Lights will be available Thursday through Sunday evenings. For reservations or more information about a carriage ride, contact Saratoga Horse and Carriage Company at 518- 584-8820. Or, gather up your friends, neighbors, family or co-workers and charter an Albany Trolley for an excursion through the Lights. Call 518-462- 3825 for details.
