4th of July Parade & Post Parade BBQ

It’s all about the Red, White and Blue!! Get ready for the CCSB 4th of July celebration! Decorate your cars… decorate yourselves and get all ready because our club will be participating in one of the most popular events in town – the Santa Barbara 4th of July parade down State Street. This is a great opportunity to shine and decorate your cars and display your club flag.

The parade is on Monday, July 4th and starts at 1:00 PM but we need to be all lined up by 11:30 AM. The staging area won’t be announced until the day before the parade but as soon as we have the exact information we will let you know. That information will be sent to you by e-mail so be sure to check your messages first thing, Monday morning. Last year, and for the past few years, our staging area has been on the north side of Micheltorena, just west of State Street, but we’re never sure exactly where we will be until the very last minute.

After the Parade there will be a BBQ in the backyard at Frank and Barbara LoMonaco’s house. If you have not been to our house before please ask for exact directions as they will not be posted. Please drive into our backyard and park on the lawn.

We’ll be having an All-American BBQ with appetizers, hamburgers and hot dogs, potato salad, chips and ice cream and apple pie too! I’ve heard rumors that Tony Megowan and Peter Makins will each be bringing a dessert – one more fabulous than the other!!

Frank will be making his famous Margaritas!  If you want anything other than Margaritas to drink – beer, soda, water, wine, etc. – Please be sure to BRING YOUR OWN DRINKS as no drinks will be provided except the Margaritas.

CCSB is hosting this party so there is no cost for members. (Single members are always welcome to bring a guest.) If you wish to bring extra guests there will be a nominal charge of $10 per person. I will be buying the food based on the number of people attending so please be sure to let me know if you are coming and how many are coming with you.

The last day to RSVP for the 4th BBQ is June 28th.  To RSVP please do so on the CCSB website Event Calendar.
