The 45th Annual Summer Solstice Celebration kicks off the summer season with a vibrant explosion of creative energy, June 21-23 at Alameda Park. The unforgettable parade, on June 22, treats attendees to cheerfully decorated floats, imaginatively costumed partakers, live music and drum ensembles as it makes its way up State Street from the shoreline. The festivities continue at Alameda Park with more music, food, and arts-and-crafts booths. Not only is Summer Solstice an over-the-top fun-fest, but it’s also the largest arts event in Santa Barbara County, drawing 100,000 people. Remember parking will be limited so plan ahead! Happy Solstice everyone!
