4th of July in Santa Barbara

4th July fireworksHappy birthday, America!  With July fast approaching, it is time once again for one of Santa Barbara’s most beloved and anticipated celebrations – Santa Barbara Symphony’s  free 4th of July concert followed by fireworks at the beach.  ­This year celebrates the 22nd annual July 4th concert at the Santa Barbara County Courthouse Sunken Gardens.  The Santa Barbara Symphony and the Santa Barbara Choral Society will perform a variety of patriotic favorites, light classics and a touch of jazz, including “The Star Spangled Banner,” “Strike Up the Band,” an excerpt from Dvorak’s Symphony No. 9, “Victor’s Tale” from the movie, The Terminal, “Riding Home” and others. The concert will also feature the world premiere of “Santa Barbara Song” by Peter Clark. The concert is scheduled to start at 5pm and it is free to the public.  The entire community is encouraged to attend this patriotic event and to bring picnic dinners and lawn chairs. A spectacular fireworks display over Santa Barbara Harbor will round out the day’s festivities.  The fireworks display is scheduled to start at 9pm, but there will be activities throughout the day at West Beach for the entire family.  Be sure to get there early for optimal viewing or better yet, enjoy a sunset dinner on Stearns Wharf and stay for the fireworks.

Summer Solstice in Santa Barbara

Solstice chairSummer Solstice DancersHappy first day of summer!  And what a beautiful morning it is in Santa Barbara!

Santa Barbara is a very unique city in its location with south facing beaches, and its idyllic weather patterns, thanks to the surrounding mountains and ocean.  But nothing makes it more unique than its own Summer Solstice Parade. This year’s celebration starts with the most unusual foot powered parade you may ever see. A cross between New Orleans’ Mardi Gras, Rio’s Carnival, with a touch of Pasadena’s Doo Dah Parade, the whimsical, wacky, fun, colorful parade will start at noon on Saturday June 22 and travels up State St. between Cota Street and Micheltorena Street.  There is a festive party immediately following at Alameda Park, just two blocks off State Street on Micheltorena. There will be bands playing, people dancing, drums booming, and of course beer and wine for those wishing to partake.

Don’t miss this great Santa Barbara parade – it is guaranteed to be a fun party!
