Another Rainstorm Puts Goleta Holiday Parade Up in the Air

The City of Goleta is hopeful that the forecast will cooperate, and we will all get to experience the magic of the Goleta Holiday Parade tomorrow, Saturday, December 10 at 6:00 p.m. in Old Town Goleta. The Santa Cruz Market 5th Annual Goleta Holiday Parade Presented by Fuel Depot originally scheduled for last Saturday, December 3, was postponed due to a strong likelihood of rain during the parade which did not transpire. Unfortunately, there is rain in the forecast again, but timing of the rain is what parade organizers (the Goleta Lions Club) is monitoring closely with the assistance of the National Weather Service. The Goleta Lions Club will decide Saturday by noon as to the status of the parade. Please check the event website https://goletaholidayparade.org/, the city website www.cityofgoleta.org and our @cityofgoleta social media sites for the parade status.

The parade route is on Hollister Avenue from Orange Avenue to Kinman Avenue. Orange Avenue between Hollister Avenue and Carson Street, and Gaviota Street between Orange Avenue and Magnolia Street, will be closed at 4:00 p.m. for parade staging. Hollister Avenue will be closed to traffic including e-bikes starting at 5:00 p.m. and is scheduled to re-open at approximately 8:30 p.m. If your vehicle is parked in the parade route it will be cited and towed. If you are attending the parade, please allow time for parking and carpool if possible. Public parking is available in the Yardi parking lot at 430 S. Fairview Avenue.

The Goleta Lions Club has been working hard behind the scenes to make this parade happen and we are hoping for a great turnout, weather permitting.

As an added incentive, Santa Claus himself will be in the Gazebo for photo opportunities following the parade. Have your camera ready! The Goleta Valley Community Center’s “Swing Along Band” will perform holiday songs in the Gazebo prior to the parade. The Gazebo is located on the front lawn of the Goleta Community Center (5679 Hollister Avenue).

We hope to see you tomorrow evening and are looking forward to a safe and fun event. More information on the parade is available at https://goletaholidayparade.org/.

Happy Holidays!

  1. Scientists from several institutions have been studying 602 tree ring chronologies from the western United States covering the past 2,000 years. Wider rings correspond to wetter years, and by overlapping the patterns of rings of one tree with the rings of another, scientists can reconstruct periods that are longer than the lives of the individual trees. The research shows that the 20th century was much wetter than normal. https://abcnews.go.com/Technology/DyeHard/story?id=178188&page=1

  2. 3:30 I provided three reliable sources/links saying exactly what I was saying so what was the lie? 3:31 mass extinctions are normal on a time scale of hundreds of millions of years and they will happen again. Not through man made climate change, most likely an asteroid, nuclear war, or major volcanic eruption that puts enough debris in the atmosphere to dramatically cool earth (to a much greater extent than any warming that has occurred the past 100 years) leading to worldwide crop failure, famine, mass starvation and death and the worldwide anarchy that with go along with it.

  3. Sacjon, I was specific to drought in CA being normal. In a similar fashion, they “changing climate” hasn’t lead to much change in Altantic hurricanes, thats of course if you listen to NOAA and actual oceanographers rather than the “news”. And no I don’t think dramatic C02 reduction is as critical as people are led to believe but a lot of other pollutants go hand in hand with whatever is emitting the C02. I also think, as feasible, we should have as little impact on our surrounds as possible.
