Solstice in Santa Barbara is a big deal! The whole city gets involved and it is one of the biggest celebrations of the year, parades, music, taste-y treats galore! One of my dear friends opens her home and hosts one of the largest block parties in town where she is literally inundated with people from all over the county. She bakes, her neighbor Emma makes her famous Jerk Chicken, and there is always a killer line up of great musicians! If you are in town, its a must!
