Holly Jolly Hoopla stops in San Clemente once again
December 7, 2012 by James
The 11th Annual Holly Jolly Hoopla in San Clemente once again helped spread holiday cheer among community members and those in attendance at the event on December 1.
San Clemente welcomed in the holiday season with this yearly event, which was formerly referred to as ‘Candy Cane Village’. A large pile of snow was even trucked in to provide just the right atmosphere for the Santa Village by the Sea. Organized by San Clemente’s city Recreation Specialist, Chris Smith, the Holly Jolly Hoopla included a showing of the popular Christmas show ‘How the Grinch Stole Christmas’, as well as sledding, cookie decorating, a candy cane factory, and a visit from Santa Claus himself.
Annual holiday community events and other activities often use a variety of printing services to advertise the event and attract visitors. Flyer printing and poster printing are methods that can be used to attract the community’s attention. Banner printing is also commonly used at such festivities and community events.
In addition to Smith, who has been involved with the organization of the Holly Jolly Hoopla since its early beginnings, other city employees were also used to staff the event, such as Tomas Dollar, who is a lifeguard at the Aquatic Safety Department.
One the sun went down on Santa’s Village by the sea and children’s shouts of joy settled to a quiet hush, San Clemente’s mayor lit up the city’s Christmas tree and a bell choir rang in the Christmas season.
