Did you know that 65 years ago, we were simply known as “Santa’s Village” and celebrated our very first Christmas? So it’s no surprise that this is our favorite time of year when we can continue the tradition of making spirits bright among generations of families and friends. From November 21st, 2020 – January 10th, 2021 we welcome you to bring back a little nostalgia with us and experience new memories at Santa’s Village 65th Christmas celebration!
You might be familiar with SkyPark at Santa’s Village as it’s known today, but did you also know these fun facts about us?
- Santa’s Village opened in 1955, the same year the Brooklyn Dodgers won the World Series. Fast forward to 2020, the (now) Los Angeles Dodgers have won the World Series again!
- Santa’s Village was opened just six weeks before Disneyland on Memorial Day Weekend in 1955!
- Santa’s Village was the first franchised theme park in the country. Though the franchise no longer exists, we proudly still remain locally and privately owned.
- In December 2016, Santa’s Village underwent a revival to transform into SkyPark at Santa’s Village: a unique hybrid of an outdoor adventure and mountain biking park merged with our Old World Christmas heritage.
- The traditional color for a 65th Anniversary is sky blue. How fitting and perfect for SkyPark!
