“This is a delicious and colorful beginning to our ‘fun’ raising for this year’s Solstice Parade and Festival.” Solstice Executive Director Claudia Bratton said of the January 26 fundraiser. “Solstice works year round to raise the money to produce this beloved event that is free for our community.”
A buffet of Indian dishes will be served, including vegetarian, vegan and meat dishes. The evening will feature the Bollywood SB dancers performing their Bollywood dance routines, as well as teaching a simple dance routine to diners.
Half of the proceeds from the Bollywood Party will go to Summer Solstice. Solstice Bollywood fundraisers sell out. Diners are encouraged to buy tickets early. Tickets are $27 and are available at India House or by calling the Solstice Office at 805.965.3396. Ticket orders may be made online through the secure PayPal server on the Solstice Website: www.solsticeparade.com.
“Creatures” is the theme for this year’s celebration. The weekend festival opens June 21, with the parade at noon June 22. The festival will continue through June 23. The Summer Solstice Celebration is a nonprofit 501(c) 3 corporation that produces the Solstice Parade, Solstice Festival and the Solstice Community Arts Workshop from donations and sponsorships.
