They enter from all sides of the city en route to Main Street downtown Santa Paula, California. Like beauty queens, they line up in their parking positions showing off their classic styles. These sensational “vintage cars” are restored with passion and artistic precision. The viewing judges are families, couples, and those who just enjoy an interesting afternoon stroll.

The FREE event is co-sponsored by the Chamber of Commerce, the Police Officers Association and the City of Santa Paula. This event starts in April through October, every first Friday of each month from 5:30 to 9:00 p.m. downtown Main Street between 7th and Mill Streets.

Visitors to Santa Paula’s historic downtown district find unique vintage stores, lamp specialty shops, impeccable Mexican restaurants, and lively Pubs. Rabalais’ Bistro offers patio dining, or you may choose a booth or table for quaint inside dining. They have the remedy for your sweet tooth.

October’s main attraction in Santa Paula is The Glen Tavern Inn. A Federal landmark, it is filled with history and ghost hauntings. Quoted from their website, John Wayne, Carol Lombard, Harry Houdini and Steve McQueen were among the stars who enjoyed gracious accommodations while filming during Hollywood’s heyday. Their Murder Mystery Theater package offers the ideal solution for that spooky romantic or family get-a-away.

Enzo’s Italian Restaurant adjacent to the hotel’s lobby (reservations preferred), serves sumptuous signature entrees like Pollo al Limone, and “Rigatoni alla Sicilian.

Speaking of Sicilian, Remnants on Mill is a few doors down at 110 Mill Street, it is the only Antique and Collectible store in Ventura County where you will find a Sicilian Trinacria.

There is more on Santa Paula’s October calendar. The Ghost Walk, Faulkner Farms Pumpkin Patch, and the 24th Annual Halloween Carnival are just a few of the spooky events planned.
