Summer Solstice Celebration
The summer solstice, the longest day of the year. What better way to celebrate than with a parade and festival! This is the craziest parade we have in Santa Barbara and has been called the "Santa Barbara's Mardi Gras". The festival started back in 1974 as a birthday celebration with a group of street performers dancing down State Street. It now is a 3 day event with a parade, street fair, concerts, stage performances, floats, costumes and dancers.
Santa Barbarians sure know how to have fun!
