hose dreaming of a white Christmas in North County will be able to get just a taste this holiday season at the Del Mar fairgrounds. This weekend for the second consecutive year, Vincenzo Giammanco and CBF Productions has brought back the classic Holidays in Your Car drive-thru holiday lights experience to Del Mar along with a new walk around experience, the Snow N Glow Holiday Festival, for families to visit. “This is our second year here and I think we were able to figure out the kinks and make it better for Del Mar this year,” Giammanco, founder of CBF Productions, told The Coast News. After a long hiatus, Giammanco’s company brought back the drive-thru holiday lights display

that was beloved by families in San Diego County. It came during a spike in COVID-19 cases last year but being an event completely inside your own vehicle made it suitable for families to enjoy safely together. “Last year it was intense because we were really in the pandemic and people were just excited to get out and still be in a safe space,” Giammanco said. “It was a tradition that people had been doing for years and they definitely missed it. I think everyone was grateful to have it back in the community.” CBF Productions, based out of Ventura, California, boasts over 1 million different lights between its drive-thru display and the walk around experience. Giammanco says his TURN TO HOLIDAY LIGHTS ON A12
