Vintage display stolen from Festival of Lights

December 27, 2013

Santa is missing.

Festival of Lights volunteers are hoping someone has some information about the grinch who took St. Nick from Comanche Trail Park around Christmas Eve. Project Manager Howard Stewart first noticed that the display was missing during a 6 p.m. check of the park on Tuesday.

The missing piece was one of four scenes in a display set up by the Big Spring State Hospital. The scenes date to the 1950s and 1960s when they were displayed at Christmastime in downtown stores such as Hemphill-
Wells and Swartz & Carter Furniture, said Pat Simmons, Festival founder.

The stolen piece has been estimated to be worth $3,000 to $4,000, “but there is really not a value we can place on these items as they are irreplaceable,” Simmons said.
