They will all have to be replaced,” Reynolds said. “It probably took about five minutes to do all that. They didn’t just run and kick and keep going.”Reynolds said vandals damaged the city’s Christmas displays last year.“They broke the antlers off the reindeer and took the little baby doll out of the manager at Galloway Park,” he said. “So, this was not the first time.
