Travel Santa Ana, the city’s tourism promotion organization, recently debuted its first-ever brand campaign, “Proud Santanero,” featuring artists and artisans who both live and work in Santa Ana and whose identities are inherently tied to the vibrant city. Each person and place is unique and collectively they weave together making Santa Ana a community that is united by originality.
Featured in the video were local business owners including Carlos “Charlie” Barragan (Charlie’s Tattoo Supply), Robert Bergman (The Visioneering Studios), Norah Briceno Brower (Mil Jugos), Logan Crow (Frida Cinema), Raymond Rangel (R & R Western Wear), Jon Sanchez (Native Son), Delilah Snell (Alta Baja Market), and Raul Yanez (Mi Moda).
This Small Business Saturday, Orange County locals can support some of these Proud Santaneros with gift options like specialty treats or a Baja wine club membership from Alta Baja Market or gift the film-fanatic in your life with a film club membership from Frida Cinema.
In addition to the featured Proud Santaneros, Santa Ana is home to a creative collective of other small businesses offering the perfect holiday gift selection – from hair care products at Suavecito, to chocolate delights from Santa Ana Sweets, to trinkets and holiday ornaments from Unlisted, a local lifestyle and home goods boutique.
