Today was one of my favorite days of the year!
The Santa Barbara Summer Solstice Celebration.
This is one of the few parades I really try not to
I like the Big Dogs Parade too, but I really
go to that one to spot Basset Hounds.
Of course, today I was looking for the goose that
produced these eggs, but they wisely must have left her at home. :-D
These eggs are called "Cascarones," and they are a Mexican/Spanish
carnival tradition (they may even have roots in Italy.)
It is customary to break them over your friends' heads.
