I love the Santa Barbara Solstice Parade! Known for its crazy costumes, over the top floats, and out-of-the-box spirit, Solstice is definitely one of my favorite times of the year. It's always a hot weekend where the whole community (and thousands of tourists) unite for a celebration of weird fun. The theme this year was "Jungle!"
She's a bugcatcher for the giant spider!
Stilted hula hooper showing the little girl her tricks
Lots of sexy scantily-clad women
A throne for a jaguar?
A human heart
Every year this amazing artist makes a huge inflatable float for the end of the parade. There is someone hanging from a curtain inside, dancing. So beautiful.

Dad's costume matched the zebra float.
