BAKERSFIELD, Calif. (KGET) — Christmas is a little over a month away but Downtown Bakersfield is already getting into the holiday spirit.
At Timeless Furninishings, a local designer is bringing back a holiday tradition.
For more than 30 years, the corner of Chester Avenue and 20th Street served as Bakersfield’s unofficial holiday hub. Formerly Brock’s department store the storefron was known as a winter wonderland.
Roger Upton — the man behind some of its most iconic displays — has spent the last five years trying to bring those timeles displays back to Downtown Bakersfield. This year, he’s taking a page out his playbook with a retro display.
Upton says the displays are meant to bring positivity to the community.
