More than 3,000 residents, visitors and Santaluz Club members converged on the Village Green on Sunday, July 26 for the annual Summer Celebration and Fireworks Spectacular – the premier Santaluz event of the year.

The crown enjoyed a day of games, crafts, music, face painters, balloon twisters and other activities. Guests were invited to also enjoy an all-American barbecue that featured ribs, chicken, baked beans, salads, fire-grilled corn on the cob and ice cream for dessert.

And just as the sun set across Santaluz, everyone settled in for a spectacular multi-media fireworks show featuring an array of pyrotechnics set to popular patriotic songs.

The event was hosted by the Santaluz Community Council under the direction of Kristie LaMarsh, Community Relations Director.

Sponsors included the Real Estate Office of Rancho Santa Fe, Mitch Pomeroy and RealEstateScope.com, Lifetime Montessori School, Dr. Randolph Alexander DDS, Sprout Photography, and Hifai Chiropractic.
