On Dec. 15, with no snow forecast, Santa Claus caught a ride to the Honokaa People’s Theatre in Herbie, a restored and much loved 1953 Volkswagen Bug.

A crowd of children with their parents waited to welcome Santa at the theater. The event was sponsored by the Honokaa People’s Theatre, the Hamakua Hairbrush Company and Sarah Anderson Photography.
