Local designer Roger Upton is bringing back a holiday tradition to downtown Bakersfield. The corner of Chester Avenue and 20th Street served as Bakersfield’s unofficial holiday hub for more than 30 years. It was formerly Brock’s department store and the storefront was known as a winter wonderland.
Upton, has spent the last six years trying to bring those timeless exhibits back to Downtown Bakersfield. This year he’s added an animatronic display. Upton wants the displays to bring positivity to the community.
