Santa Barbara Summer Solstice Celebration & Parade! Festival Date: June 22nd, 23rd & 24th Parade Date: June 23rd, 2012 Noon

Midsummer bonfires were a tradition dating back to pagan times in Ireland. This festival took place at the time of the Summer Solstice and later became adopted by Christianity as St. John's Day. It is the time when the fairies are at their strongest and come out among the stone circles on Midsummer's Eve. It's also the time the spirits of the people who will die in the next year would leave their bodies and wander abroad for the night, prompting night time vigils.
