California Heritage Museum Tree

The beloved 13 foot tall Noble fir will stand tall over Main Street, decorated with colorful lights, taking center stage on the Heritage Museum lawn at the corner of Main Street and Ocean Park.


After taking a break from toy-making, Santa will hop in his sleigh and travel all the way down from the North Pole to say hello to good little boys and girls this holiday season he meets on Main Street.

Santa played by Jack Rudegeair.

The World Famous Shopping Cart Tree

In a steel and glass canyon called "Edgemar” aka the Frank Gehry designed Edgemar building at 2415 Main Street is a courtyard that is the home of creativity and magic, and, where every year the community gathers to celebrate the holiday traditions around a tree made up of shopping carts.

Created by artist Anthony Schmitt the Shopping Cart Tree is a stack of 94 carts and stands 40 feet tall and for 27 years now it has become internationally renowned.

Sadly due to ongoing covid and vacancies this year we are in need of fundraising to keep the art installation ongoing altogether. We need the support of lovers of creativity and holiday traditions.

Thank you for your contribution every bit helps and please join us for the candle light walk with Santa to the tree this year Saturday evening December 11th. May we all have a have a joyful and wonderful holiday season.
