Sammy Clarita became a beloved mascot for the city of Santa Clarita when he was introduced to the community to help celebrate the city’s 30th anniversary in 2017. The stuffed animal horse was hidden at various city events and locations as part of a social media scavenger hunt.
Although the campaign was intended to last a year, Sammy Clarita’s popularity within the community grew so much that he continued to make appearances well after the 30th-anniversary celebration.
Sammy has made special visits at a hospital, the Santa Clarita Cowboy Festival, press conferences and much more. This year Sammy Clarita is celebrating the Santa Clarita Public Library.
