Next to the Avocado Festival, St. Joseph Catholic Church’s annual summer Festival is Carpinteria’s biggest community event of the year. Carnival rides, food vendors and music acts liven-up the church property for three days each July, and this year was no exception. Parents do well to plan ahead and purchase unlimited ride wristbands for their kids to spin, twirl and go inverted all weekend. The beer tent also awaits thirsty festival patrons.
