Reindeer Foo Foo

Rudolph the red nosed ... rabbit? Hall Wines’ giant Bunny Foo Foo is decked out in antlers, belt and a red nose for the holidays. “We thought it would be a fun thing to do,” said designer Mary Ross at Napa-based Five Star Productions, speaking for herself and the Halls. “It looks whimsical and brings joy to a lot of people. Bunny is having fun in his costume.” The costume includes energy-efficient LED lights, which Ross’ team installed, after doing a lot of measuring. They found out the rabbit is 32 feet long with 10-foot-long ears. Ross has a background in large sculpture so is familiar with scale and logistics, plus she said her team enjoys heights. They also put the lights on the 80-foot-tall Queen of the Valley tree every year. Commuters on Highway 29 can look forward to other holidays, Ross said, like Valentine’s Day and Easter, that lend themselves to costumes.
