To our Parade Entries and our many Community Supporters and Sponsors,

The Goleta Lions Club is an “all-volunteer” service club that has been serving the Goleta Valley for over 8o years. We have spent hundreds of volunteer hours preparing for the 2022 Goleta Holiday Parade.

We all are super happy that we will be finally getting some rain!!!

BUT we are sad to have to change our plans.

  1. Because of the approaching rainstorm, the Goleta Holiday Parade is postponed from Saturday, Dec. 3rd to Saturday, Dec. 10th, 2022. Start time will still be 6pm and all other rules and regulations will be the same
  2. All items of operations, including hours of staging, street closures, liability requirements, etc. will be the same. Your liability release forms you submitted will still be acceptable. If you haven’t turned in your group’s liability forms, you must submit at the parade check-in. The same rules apply for vehicle proof of insurance.
  3. We realize that moving the date may create a hardship for some of our entries but it is our one and only option.
  4. If you cannot participate, we offer two possibilities. First, we would retain your entry donation and reserve you a spot in the 2023 Parade on Saturday, December 2, 2023. OR Second, we will refund your donation by check in the mail. Because all our staffing is voluntary, this will occur by Jan. 15th, 2023. We thank you for your patience and understanding.
  5. If you cannot participate or have questions, please notice us by emailing edholdren45@outlook.com
  6. Lastly, if it is also raining on Saturday, December 10, the Parade for this year will be canceled.
