Grinch steals lights from Middletown Christmas display
The lights at Smith Park go up every year It's a drive-through display to spread Christmas cheer. Barney Strassburger and the rest of the Grandpa Gang give Light Up Middletown its pizzazz, shine and bang. It opens at Thanksgiving to families far and wide - to enjoy it, they just hop in their cars for a ride. Gliding under all the twinkling lights, it's one of Middletown's favorite holiday delights. But lately, some Grinches have ruined the fun - Vandals tripped fuses and are now on the run.
