    Every year in late May, Santa Rosa has the Luther Burbank Rose Parade & Festival. Although the name has changed a bit, this event has been held for over 100 years. It celebrates the name of Santa Rosa, Luther Burbank an his love of plants, especially roses, and other Santa Rosa icons and institutions. In 2006, the unveilng of the new statute for the Peanuts character Woodstock, and the start of the "Summer of Woodstock" honouring that character (see my tip on Peanuts) was also part of it. The parade goes through downtown and ends on Santa Rosa Ave. at the Luther Burbank Home & Gardens and Julliard Park, a beautiful old park at the south end of downtown. There are many events at the park and the area, attractions for kids, plus lots of food.

    Luckily, my mother's got the great house and vineyard for just such an occassion! We had a lovely reception, with plenty of parking for the guests between the rows in the vineyard. Ahhh, a perfect party!

    You're a Good Man, Charles Schultz

    Charlie Brown

    Peanuts creator Charles Schultz was a longtime resident of Santa Rosa. So today, everywhere downtown, are fiberglass sculptures of Charlie Brown. The local information booth is made to look like Snoopy's doghouse. It's cute, and an acknowledgement of the debt that the town owes to the memory of Schultz.

    I never made it to the Charles M. Schultz Museum in Santa Rosa, but provided the website below.
