"There's a festival...

... on every single weekend in Santa Barbara during the summer. Don't worry about your free time!" I thought this saying about Santa Barbara is a nice brochure advertisement, but it's true! 

Two weeks ago, there was the French Festival, last weekend you could taste any kind of wine at the Wine Festival (which is a huge deal around here!) and this weekend I visited the Greek Festival. At first, I was not sure if "Greek" meant fraternities and sororities and it's all about charity and drinking, but it's not! People danced traditional Greek dances, there was lots of food and Greek soap, glittery dresses, towels, spices etc. The festival was held in a dry park downtown, so grass and the trees look kind of Mediterranean as well ;-)
