I don't care for the phrase "hands down," but in this case, the summer solstice festival is, hands down, my favorite weekend of the year in Santa Barbara.
Everyone is good natured and pleasant, except maybe the bitter pills that laid out their lawn chairs the night before and get all pissed off when people with children need to pass through their staked claim to reach the sidewalk.
It's an occasion to dress up, get a little wacky, dance your head off at the Park afterwards, and then wander off to the plethora of private solstice parties afterwards.
But gosh darn it, don't you just hate it when you've queued your camera up to get a photo of Pali-X's latest mad infatable and one of those jellyfish umbrellas walks in your way?
