We've already seen some of Steve Stuart's family photos of Santa's Village up at Lake Arrowhead; but I have a few of my own to share as well, and December is the time to do it.
Guests are at the entrance to the park, passing giant candy canes and oversized mushrooms (no fungi pictured here, unfortunately). I've always liked the way the ends of the logs that make up the building were painted with decorations - they remind me of traditional Swedish Christmas items that my grandmother had.
Two boys are bundled up against the cold as they pose next to a simple painted plywood choo-choo. Features like these were about as low-tech as could be, but I find them to be very charming.
Is this an old fire truck? I'd expect more water storage capabilities, but what do I know. Not much! Either way, it's big, it's red, it's a truck, and kids love it.
Looks like this crazy mechanical clock thingy is for the "Night Time Toys" shop. Or maybe it says "Right Time Toys". "Fight Time Toys"? I like that much better! Baseball bats with nails in them, brass knuckles, nunchucks - anything a person needs to fight dirty. What time is it? Time to fight!
