December 14th at 5:00 PM – The 60th Annual holiday parade! Yes, by popular demand, we’re moving it to night time, so we’d better have the street lit up like a power plant, and encourage all the paraders to light up their entries! Parade entry forms can be found here.
December 22nd from 9 AM – 2 PM – Kids Day at the EyeGlass Factory. Rick Feldman hosts hundreds of families, providing free eye screenings, eyeglasses, healthcare, Santa and more. We’ll be there giving out kids bikes, great goodies from Tri County Produce and having fun with all the kids. Come on by, or volunteer for the event. It’s one of the most heartwarming in our community. Volunteer by emailing email@example.com
So that’s plenty of great things happening in our community to keep you busy this fall heading into the holidays!
We have sold out of pre-ordered tickets. All tickets must now be purchased at the event.
Go to our Taste of Milpas page for all the details you need!

Message from the city:
We are listening Eastside Residents! In case you missed the February 2nd Eastside Listening Workshop, the City of Santa Barbara Public Works Department, Transportation Division, wanted to provide you with an additional opportunity to provide your thoughts and opinions about pedestrian and traffic safety in the Eastside neighborhood. Please take the following survey. Your feedback is very important so the City can get affirmation from the residents on what truly matters in the community. The City will be holding the second Eastside Workshop in the beginning of April to discuss possible approaches to the resident concerns received from the surveys and initial Eastside Listening Workshop.
