Historic Roadside Santa Celebrates 10th Anniversary In Ventura County

Posted on Tuesday, December 24, 2013 12:19am

It was a holiday themed tradition in Santa Barbara County for decades.  Now, it’s celebrating it’s 10th anniversary in Ventura County.

In 2003, a historic roadside Santa near Carpinteria became homeless, but some people stepped up to provide a new home for the massive sculpture.

Since the move, it’s become much more than a photo opportunity.  It’s become the catalyst for toy drives, a half marathon, and even college scholarships.

KCLU’s Lance Orozco has an update on the story.
