'Tis the Season... for shopping local
We love the holidays in Ventura County. Whether it’s walking through the elaborately lit displays in the Henry T. Oxnard National Historic District, browsing the booths in Camarillo’s own Santa’s Village, listening to medieval and Renaissance carols in Ojai or breathing in the ocean air during a seaside Parade of Lights in either harbor, I’m not sure there’s a greater variety of festive experiences to be had.

Ocean-loving elves wanted: Santas plan to paddle around Ventura Harbor
THE WITCHES... that famously roam some of California's best-known harbors and marinas just ahead of Halloween, paddling into our October worlds with magical moxie, have pointed their broomsticks for other horizons. This leaves these shore-close areas needing some enchantment, the kind of joy that comes when quirky characters appear, all to bring an additional element of fun and lightheartedness to a hectic time of year. Good thing that a cadre of colorfully attired elves take over the whimsical paddleboarding when the witches depart, delivering salty-air'd smiles and Santa-centered cheer to everyone in the vicinity. We are, of course, ho-ho-ho-ing over the annual Santa Paddle at Ventura Harbor, which is simply this: A bunch of kayakers and paddleboarders wearing Santa- or elf-inspired outfits.
