Here at Riskin Associates, we feel so lucky to live and work in the beautiful cities of Montecito and Santa Barbara. One of the many wonderful qualities of our lovely town is the community’s regular efforts to come together for fun (and often free!) gatherings. Be it the daily local farmer’s markets, the Sunday Art walk at Chase Palm Park or the Downtown Organization’s First Thursday events, it seems there is always an opportunity to grab your friends and get outside to enjoy this incredible area. Although events take place year round, summer events seem to take place daily. Recently, The Santa Barbara Conference and Visitor’s Bureau has released the schedule for this summer’s Movies in the Sunken Garden event which takes place on weekend evenings at the beautiful Santa Barbara Court House’s sunken garden in July and August. This year, legendary filmmaker Alfred Hitchcock will be featured, with an exciting Hitchcock film being played every week. Community members are invited to bring a blanket and a picnic and enjoy the sweet summer air and a fun film with friends. Entry to the garden is free, for more information on these and other fabulous Santa Barbara county events, visit the Visitors Bureau’s Calendar of Events.
