In spite of threatening fire and awful air Downtown Ventura is starting a new winter tradition the Candy Cane Forest in Ventura’s Plaza Park. Fresh cut trees were sponsored and decorated by local businesses, nonprofits, and families around Ventura for the holidays. This completely free, family-friendly, all-faiths festival will last until January 2nd. Sadly, due to the fires many of the planned events have been cancelled but you can still enjoy the beautifully decorated trees. For more information visit holidaysattheplaza.com.
