Santa’s is in town, so you’d better be good! This tradition is sponsored by the Torrance Police Officers Association (TPOA) — the kids LOVE it (adults, too)!
Torrance Police Officers Association started the Santa Float back in 1966 bringing candy and smiles to children of all ages. The current float was built in 1992 by members of the Police Officers Association. It is a completely voluntary operation coordinated by its members.
