Summer Celebration in Santa Barbara

By Linda Tancs

Today marks the northern hemisphere’s summer solstice, a transition dating back to ancient Greek celestial navigation and celebrated in many cultures as a midpoint between the seasons. Santa Barbara marks the event later in the week with one of the largest single-day arts events. Enjoy the multicultural jamboree at the festival on 25 and 26 June, including drum and dance, flamenco and soul. The theme of Saturday’s parade is Carnival, an apt description considering the more than 1,000 parade participants, complete with extravagant floats, whimsical costumes and creatively choreographed dancing ensembles. It’s all happening at Alameda Park.
