In this year’s “Centennial Exhibition”, participants from three California Freemo groups (San Luis Obispo, Los Angeles and Northern California) assembled a large “Freemo” HO layout. The two-day event is held in conjunction with the Santa Maria Chamber of Commerce and the Santa Maria Town Center Mall.
