Trailer Park Santa Stand bucks tradition on 14th Street with mini camper
The Christmas tree vendor is setting up as usual on the northwest corner of 14th Street at First Avenue.
EVG regular Pinch notes something new this year — a mini camper. This takes the place of the Cousin Eddie-style camper that had been parked on 14th Street in recent years, though not last year because of, we heard, the new SBS lane.
No word yet on what inflatables to expect this year. A Santa? A reindeer? A bear? A reindeer with a bear and Santa?
Meanwhile, a look back to 2014...
