Fuck your light display -- Ashland, KY

The Winter Wonderland of Lights display in Ashland's Central Park has been targeted by vandals, again.

The project coordinator Marion Russell says it happened late Friday night into early Saturday morning.

Russell estimates about eight to ten thousand dollars worth of damage.

When the lights committee arrived at the park Saturday morning around 7a.m. to do some maintenance work they discovered the destruction.

According to Russell the caboose on the train display has been bent in two places, and was flipped over; the covering on the castle display was ripped off and the lights are broken. He also says a brand new elf display was also destroyed.

Back on December 3rd vandals hit and stole extension courts and did some other petty damage.

Similar crimes have been happening since October when the 70 light displays went up.
