COSTA MESA — With the help tow trucks and community volunteers, Snoopy, Charlie Brown and the rest of the Peanuts gang began the move Friday from the Eastside to their new holiday digs at City Hall.
In the spirit of the special occasion, city staff put up different Christmas lights around the building this year, said city spokesman Bill Lobdell.
Jim Jordan, 59, owner of the elaborate Peanuts-themed Christmas display that for 44 years welcomed families to the corner Santa Ana Avenue home, said the display will be built by Monday.
The city put out a call for volunteers this week to help Jordan put together the decorations that include a giant doll house, faux ice skating rink and photo booth for Christmas memories. Santa Claus also will be on hand next week for pictures.
Jordan had to move the display after the home he used as a rental property went into default and was foreclosed on last year.
