Artists Put Final Touches on Solstice Floats

SANTA BARBARA, Calif. - For weeks, artists and volunteers have been working on Summer Solstice Parade floats.

Saturday their creations will be pushed and pulled up State Street.

Paradegoers will get a glimpse of all of the designs inspired by this year's Game theme.

One of the largest floats is a take on Hasbro's Hungry Hungry Hippo board game, but this version has sound effects.

There will also be musical chairs using thrones.

The fun isn't just along the parade route, it continues with a free party at Alameda Park.

Bands  will play in the park on Saturday and Sunday and some of the floats will be on display.
