SUMMER SOLSTICE PARADE IN SANTA BARBARA

Kid's Parade Featured at the Annual Event

by Bonnie Carroll

Kids were everywhere at the Annual Summer Solstice Parade, while colorful hand-made floats, wagons, dance troops and performers brought State Street in Santa Barbara to a paramount peak in honor of the weekend long Solstice party that has become a tradition in the seaside city. The pre-parade activities attract media representatives from around the work; especially photographers taking shots of the artistic and colorful entrees, and participants. For the first time this year Summer Solstice featured a parade for kids only.

This year the theme for Solstice was “Legends” and Mayor Helen Schneider came as Amelia Earhart; carrying her own plane. Members of the Santa Barbara City Council joined in the fun wearing costumes and greeting residents and spectators. The musical troops with dancers are considered to be fantastic and a huge draw for the parade each year

The Summer Solstice Parade began in 1974, as a birthday celebration for a popular artist and mime named Michael Gonzales. The Parade and Festival is the largest arts event in Santa Barbara County, drawing crowds of over 100,000 spectators from around the world. From these humble beginnings arose a celebration of life which, is like no other. 

Today, the Summer Solstice Celebration has evolved into creative and original display of floats, giant puppets, whimsical costumes and masks of more than 1,000 parade participants, of all ethnic and economic backgrounds. There is dancing, music, drumming and drama that enthralls the spectators. Each year there is an annual artistic competition for the Solstice T-shirt and Poster design that is sold as a fund raising vehicle for the event. Visit our Solstice Store or Poster Gallery today to purchase T-shirts and posters.

On Saturday only a special free children’s festival and a DJ area for dancing and enjoying techno music and a large drum circle kept the beat going all afternoon. The festival now opens on Friday afternoon, which is like the “evening events of years past.”  It’s a special evening, showcasing local talents with music, dance, performances.  Some of the parade ensembles are featured as well as all of the food booths, arts and crafts vendors. As a 501(c)3, nonprofit, community organization, the Summer Solstice Celebration group is responsible for carrying on Michael’s delightful, multicultural performing arts celebration, and ensuring an extravagant celebration of life through art for many years to come.
