Ruby Tuesday Goes to the Summer Solstice Parade

I was in the Santa Barbara area visiting my daughter and daughter-in-law who live in Goleta and we attended the Santa Barbara Summer Solstice Celebration. This year the theme was" carnival" and the was lots and lots of rubies everywhere.

Enjoy and happy Ruby Tuesday, which is hosted by Mary. Every week, participants submit photos that contain a little or a lot or very mixed hues of ruby red. Check it out!

  1. I love these huge masks, It reminds me so much of the Soal Korea Olympics in that is something they did at that time. They are a lot of fun

  3. You can almost hear the music and the laughter while looking at these pictures. There's something so much sweeter about gatherings and parades arranged by real people rather than the corporate sponsored events we hear of so much more often.
