The Price Chopper /Market 32 Capital Holiday Lights in the Park

The free programs and events of Albany PAL are made possible by our biggest fundraiser of the year: The Capital Holiday Lights in the Park.  Visitors to the Park are treated to a night of splendor and holiday cheer as they drive or walk through the magical winter wonderland of Washington Park. For more than 20 years, Capital Holiday Lights in the Park has been a sign of the season in Albany and throughout the Capital Region. Filled with light displays, craft vendors, holiday treats and even Santa visits, this is an event that cannot be missed!
