The Montecito Association held their annual “Montecito Holiday Magic Car Parade” on Saturday at 5:00 pm.
Twenty-five local organizations participated by driving festively decorated vehicles from the Upper Village to Coast Village Road.
Nonprofit organization Adams Angels, the Montecito Water District, County Search and Rescue, and the Montecito Fire Department were just a few of the groups participating.
Dozens of volunteer’s with Adam’s Angels, who you can see out in the community helping the unsheltered with meals and clothes, were treated to champagne and holiday music as they excitedly waved out the window at residents spread out along the two mile route, brightening up the otherwise dark streets with Christmas lights and holiday cheer.
This event is in its third year. In 2021, then new residents, Prince Harry and Princess Meghan, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex, donated significant funds to launch the first “Holiday Magic” parade.
