Mark your calendars - July 11-12, 2009

French Festival Eiffel Tower
Originally uploaded by santa barbarian.

The fabulous French Festival is coming back to Oak Park.

Smiling families dine at sidewalk cafés with checkered tableclothes and umbrellas. Starry-eyed couples toast each other with wine. Artists wearing bérets paint at their easels. The air is filled with music, laughter, and the tempting aromas of French cuisine. Surely this must be France?

Actually, it's the 22nd Annual French Festival in Santa Barbara, Saturday and Sunday, July 11 & 12 (Bastille Day Weekend), from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. in Santa Barbara's Oak Park. Admission is free. Over 20,000 people are expected to attend.

While Parisians celebrate the French Revolution 8,000 miles away, Californians will revel in the sights, sounds, foods and joie de vivre of France at the largest French celebration in the Western United States.

Will this be the last one? The Festival is up for sale. Inquires - FestivalForSale@yahoo.com
