Santa's Village

by Gabrielle Antonette and Carrie Nusbaum

If you grew up in the LA area, you might remember Santa's Village--a Christmas-themed amusement park near Lake Arrowhead. The park closed down in the early '00s (surprise! that was more than ten years ago), and most of it is still standing...although it's normally closed to the public. The property is now for sale, and last weekend our friend Doug invited us to an open house. Unfortunately, tours are open to serious buyers only, and while none of us technically qualify, we were lucky enough to accompany the artist behind Palm Springs' Robolights, who happens to be interested.
