To celebrate the giving season, etnies and its owner and CEO, Pierre-André Senizergues, hosted its ninth annual holiday festival and shoe gifting for 360 in-need children at the etnies Skatepark of Lake Forest last Friday. During the event, each child from various Orange County non-profit organizations was given the chance to unwrap their own new pair of etnies shoes, meet and take photos with Santa Claus, hang out with etnies team riders and play carnival games. Santa put an even bigger smile on the children’s faces when he skated through the skatepark!

Watch the highlights from the 2012 etnies Annual Holiday Festival, featuring the shoe donation, Santa skateboarding and etnies team riders Nick Garcia, David Reyes, Aidan Campbell, Alex Midler and Chris Del Moro, and keep an eye out for a backside flip from Heath Kirchart.
