🎉 Exciting News! 🎉 After 3 long years without the Christmas Parade of Lights, we're thrilled to announce that it's back and scheduled to happen, rain or shine, in 2023! 🌟

This year marks the 28th anniversary of the Christmas Parade of Lights under Rotary leadership. It's a tradition that has evolved and grown over the years, thanks to the dedication of our community. From its early beginnings to the joyful spirit of giving, this parade has been a symbol of unity and celebration.

We want to extend a heartfelt thank you to our incredible sponsors who have made this revival possible: Santa Maria Times, Santa Ynez Band of Chumash Indians, Mechanics Bank, Marian Regional Medical Center, and Reyes Coca-Cola Bottling. Your support means the world to us, and it's thanks to your generosity that we can once again light up the streets with holiday cheer!

Join us as we kick off the holiday season with the Christmas Parade of Lights, and remember, it's not just about the lights and decorations; it's about the joy of giving and coming together as a community. Stay tuned for more details, and let's make this year's parade one to remember! 🎄✨ #ChristmasParade #CommunitySpirit #SantaMariaTradition #ThankYouSponsors

Hey everyone! We had an amazing time at the OCAF Chalk Fest this weekend. A huge thank you to Mason, Mike, Linda, and Tanya for distributing 400 water bottles to keep the community hydrated. Your hard work truly made a difference.

We also had the privilege of sponsoring a square for an artist. Check out the picture to see the incredible artwork that graced our sponsored square! Although the artist Cody had already left, his art certainly left an impression. Thanks to everyone who came out to support both the community and the arts! 🎨💦
