Santa Barbara 4th of July Parade
The Santa Barbara 4th of July parade is an annual “must see” event. The community really knows how to celebrate our country’s independence. The parade included marching bands, equestrians, Porsche and Corvette car clubs, twirling clubs from Santa Barbara and Camarillo, Masons, ACLU advocates, a Bill of Rights float, a California birthday celebration, costumed military reenactors from the Revolutionary War and others firing muskets along the way. There were also Boy Scouts, a full sized military helicopter, the Vesparados scooter club, and pop music bands.
Spectators were there to view the spectacle from all over the world. The crowds that lined the street were fascinated with the parade, laughing and waving wildly as the parade entrants passed by. They took pictures and held up peace signs. On this day, Santa Barbara was a true reflection of a multicultural America.
