ALBANY, N.Y. (NEWS10) — We are still seeing Halloween pictures on our Facebook pages, but go to the stores and Christmas has taken over!

Here in Washington Park, they need nightly volunteers to get the 19th Annual Holiday Lights celebration underway.

The 2015 edition of the Price Chopper Capital Holiday Lights is an all-new, drive-through spectacular in Albany’s Washington Park.

The 19th Annual Price Chopper Capital Holiday Lights in the Park drive-through runs from November 27, 2015, until January 2, 2016.

Presented by Mayor Kathy Sheehan, the people of the City of Albany and Albany PAL, this year’s show depicts holiday scenes of yesteryear and many new and exciting lighting displays.

At the end of your drive through the Lights, the Washington Park Lake House comes alive. Join your favorite reindeer and friends as they bring fun and mystery to the holiday season. The Lake House is filled with crafts and refreshments. Santa will be there through December 23 to hear the holiday wishes of the little ones.

Hours are Sundays through Thursdays from 6 to 9 p.m. and Fridays and Saturdays from 6 to 10 p.m.

Admission prices are $15.00 per car, $25.00 for 10-18 passenger vehicle, $50.00 for vehicles containing 19-28 passengers, $75.00 for school buses and $100.00 for commercial coaches, with all proceeds benefiting the youth programming of Albany PAL.

The best part of the 19th Annual Price Chopper Capital Holiday Lights in the Park is that all proceeds benefit the juvenile crime prevention programs of the Albany Police Athletic League (PAL)!
