Penny Little and Nik Green aka the Away Team performed on the main stage for Summer Solstice Celebration 2013, as part of the largest 3 day arts festival in Santa Barbara County.  Solstice artist Pali-X joined the Away Team, with another dancer dressed as a Unicorn.  

This celebration of life and art brings 100,000 people to the streets to see the colorful people-powered parade dancing up State Street to Alameda Park. 

We shared the stage with a fantastic lineup including Creed Bratton and the Rubbermen.  For those who are not familiar, Creed is most recently known for playing himself in NBC's comedy "The Office" which just ended after 9 years.   He is also a former member of 60's chart topper "The Grass Roots".

The Festival each year begins Friday with performances from ensembles from the parade - continues through the weekend, with the Parade at NOON on Saturday.
