Subject: Summer Solstice Santa Barbara

I want to let you all into a secret. Santa Barbara California has many festivals including La Fiesta in August. However the best kept secret and most fun celebration of the year is Summer Solstice. The whole town seems to be in party mood. The parade ( alternative and funny ) starts at 12.00noon and progresses up State St for about a mile. The streets are lined with revellers who dance behind the parade and meet up at a local park to continue the celebration. During the rest of the day people are hanging out parting and its really something to see. This year's celebration will be on 17th of June (Saturday ). I'll tell everyone how it turned out afterwards!
