    Hard to say how old these are. Santa's Village was open from the late 1950s until sometime in the 1980s. That doesn't count the fact that it has recently been reopened, much rejoicing. Currently it is called Santa's Village at Skypark. The attractions now are mountain bike riding and ziplines along with some restaurants. There is supposed to be much more to come.
    Up first is the Santa's Mill Wheel Toy Factory. This of course are where GI Joes and Matchbox cars were made along with factories in Japan and Hong Kong.
    And finally the Chapel of the Little Sheppard. I wonder if they still have those sculpted replicas as it says on the back of the card.
    Getting out my Christmas decorations now so there may be some interruptions on posting.

      There’s another here in California, not nearly as impressive. It’s between Santa Barbara & Ventura I believe.( it’s been years) I always wondered why there was a “Santa Village” right on the freeway by the coast!
      Fort’s Santa Village would be much more fun to visit and realistic being in the mountains, not on the beach! Ha!

      Thank you very much Newfld. They need to get back to that.

      Thank you very much Ms.CrystalShip. I recall that and seeing it from the highway. There is another Santa's Village in Santa Cruz.
