Dec 13 – The Old Town Orcutt Parade

Our friends at the Orcutt LC Community Foundation, Inc. have chosen the Foodbank as nonprofit beneficiary of the parade on December 13, 2014.

2014 Poster website

For over half a century, the Old Town Orcutt Christmas Parade has demonstrated the very best of small town spirit and community involvement – it is truly an old-fashioned community event and continues to remain deeply rooted in tradition. Participants represent local groups, organizations and businesses; you’ll see small floats and marching bands, kids on tricycles and ladies on Vespas. Best of all, Santa always makes his appearance!

Begun and managed by the Orcutt Volunteer Fire Department until it was disbanded/absorbed into the Santa Barbara County Fire Dept. in 2008, the Parade is now managed by the volunteers of the Orcutt LC Community Foundation, Inc. The Foundation has partnered with the International Association of Lions Clubs through the participation of the local Orcutt Lions Club, who meet at the “Lions Den” at 126 S. Broadway, located between the Union 76 Station and “Jack’s” Restaurant. The Lions of District 4-A3, stretching from Ventura county through San Luis Obispo county, are represented by the Old Town Parade.

The Parade starts promptly at noon on the second Saturday in December (rain or shine!), beginning on South Broadway before turning east onto Clark Avenue, and continuing all the way to Twitchell Street. Parade viewers quickly fill both sides of these streets so be sure to grab a spot early!

Parade visitors are encouraged to support the Foodbank by bringing non-perishable items to donate along the parade route!
