Santa Barbara's Summer Solstice

Summer Solstice of one of Santa Barbara's very own holidays. It seems everyone heads downtown with a smile on their face, ready to embrace the summer festivities. This year the parade theme was "Creatures," inviting characters of all kinds to show off their creative nature. Spectators applauded participants from dancers to hula-hoopers and even a live wedding ceremony! The parade always gets me excited for the season ahead. Summer in Santa Barbara is all about living a carefree lifestyle by the beach--the reason we all live here anyways!
