VENTURA, Calif. — This year could easily have been a bit less merry and bright, but Vincenzo Giammanco wouldn’t have it.
Giammanco is founder of CBF Productions and, just like the guy in red, has been busy putting together a new way for families to celebrate the season in a safe, socially distanced setting.
Holidays in Your Car is 1.5 miles of merry. Giammanco describes it as a kind of “lazy river” experience, with cars winding slowly through the fairgrounds and coming across different displays, as holiday music plays through their stereos. There are classic fairy tales, elves, reindeer, and an entire section of animated construction vehicles all made out of light.
