Downtown Santa Barbara is the place to be as thousands of people will gather to watch as colorful floats, marching bands, performers and local personalities clear the way for arrival of Santa Claus and the lightning of the Holiday tree on the corner of State and Victoria.
The 60th annual Santa Barbara Holiday Parade, 6:30 p.m., is likely to galvanize the downtown crowds in the wake of Christmas preparation and festivities to come in the next few weeks. This is a not-to miss colorful event that brings the cheer of holidays to everyone in our town!
The wonders of the world brought closer to home: A National Geographic Photographer, Mattias Klum of Sweeden, will come to UCSB to present a lecture abut his travels to the most remote corners of the globe and stress sustainability in the new and ever-interconnected world we all live in.
Light up a life- Hospice of Santa Barbara hosts its annual 29th annual Light Up A Life Celebration to remember the memories of loved ones by accepting donations and lighting up a memorial tree.
Much in the spirit of the holidays, this event brings the past and present together in the most touching of ways and in the true spirit of giving as we look to the New Year ahead.
