Here’s a look at all the activities that were planned for the 1990 Goleta Valley Days. Interestingly, this event was about a week-long, compared to what we now know as the Goleta Lemon Festival, which takes place on a Saturday and Sunday.
One other item of interest is the parade that took place on October 20. The parade started at Calle Real and Kingston, went over the Fairview Avenue Bridge, and ended at the Goleta Community Center.
