Proud Santaneros 


In Santa Ana, each person and place is unique, and collectively, they weave together to create a community united by originality. We are artists, restaurateurs, brewers, and skaters. We never follow anyone else’s path – we forge our own.

Locals were filmed answering questions about what makes them a "Proud Santanero" and what they recommend to visitors.  

The variety of the featured video participants and their independent businesses echo the city's diversity.

Playing on our city's pride and close community, the video series features the tagline “When it’s Santa Ana vs. Everybody, Always Bet on Us.”

Additional Santa Ana local business owners and community members will be added through this ongoing video series.
