CFFC: View From the Side (Cee’s Photography)

For a few years after his death, the city of Santa Rosa, CA celebrated Charles M. Schulz by having a “Peanuts on Parade” program.  Different businesses around town would decorate or paint the chosen character and then display them for a few months before they were auctioned off to create art scholarships.  My husband and I happened to go the years Woodstock and Charlie Brown were the chosen characters.  They no longer change the characters every year, but there still 70 statues on display around town (you can download a PDF of their locations here) plus there are a few at the Schulz museum, which if you like the Peanuts cartoons, visiting the museum is a must.
