Things to do in Santa Barbara -- Late Spring 2014

May 19, 2014

The rides have been lovely on the I Bike Santa Barbara tour.  Several weeks past bud break now the vineyard canopies are lush and green.  There are still a few California Poppies around (our gift of spring), but as their orange hue becomes less abundant, a glow of violet is showing at Clairmont Lavender Farm.  As for the wines, we have particularly been loving the rosé s from Kaena and Rideau this warm spring.

Elsewhere around Santa Barbara, we recommend the following activities:

I Madonnari – Italian Street Painting Festival — May 24 -26 — The plaza of the Old Mission will be transformed with 150 vibrant and colorful,large-scale street paintings created by artists and young people.  The event also features gustosto Italian food and beverages.  http://www.imadonnarifestival.com/
