The annual Santee Street Fair returned to East County today!
I rode the San Diego Trolley up to Santee Trolley Square to enjoy an event I hadn’t previously experienced.
The festival began with the presentation of colors, the Pledge of Allegiance, and the singing of the Star Spangled Banner. In addition to youthful dancing and martial arts demonstrations, a Gold Star family took to the main stage. They were thanked for their sacrifice with a standing ovation.
Lots of neighbors came out to enjoy food, fun and fellowship. The kid zone’s rides were whirling. Smiling artists, vendors and community organizations were plentiful. I’ve never seen so many prize wheels!
After a bit, the sun peeked out from the clouds above. And it felt like a perfect Memorial Day weekend had begun!
