Celebrate Christmas in July with Santa, July 14

One of the traditions jolly Old St. Nick has in July is to visit our great community for the Christmas in July Toys for Tots event at Marty Pay Insurance Agency. This year's event will be on Wednesday, July 14 and Santa has a lot of surprises and prizes in his bag!

He's suspended his naughty and nice list for the evening, anyone who brings an unwrapped toy will have a chance at a drawing for prizes including a 55-inch TV. There will be other prizes provided by local businesses and Santa is making sure anyone who shows up will be well fed. Great food will be provided by Red House BBQ!

Santa will be there for any kids that want to get a jump on giving the jolly old guy their Christmas list. Chances are he'll be dressed in his red hat, a Hawaiian Shirt, shorts and flip flops, after all it is July in Kern County.

If you can't make the event, Santa does have some helpers. You can drop an unwrapped toy at City Hall, Tehachapi Treasure Trove, Country Real Estate, Bank of the West, Tehachapi Martial Arts, Tehachapi Police Department or Farmers Insurance. Any of the locations will give you a coupon for the drawings. All toys will stay local!

Come join Santa and his elves for a great time, great food and great prizes, all to help the kids of Tehachapi! Bring your kids and an unwrapped toy for Toys for Tots and join the fun from 4:30 to 7 p.m. on Wednesday, July 14 at Marty Pay Farmers Insurance, 212 W. F Street, in Tehachapi, across the parking lot from Bank of the Sierra downtown or call (661) 822-3737 for more info. Ho, ho, ho!
