A Celebration of the Swallows’ Return to San Juan Capistrano


We kept our horses home and safe this year because of the highly contagious equine virus that had spread across the state. We missed them terribly, but it was the right thing to do.

We will see them again March 25 2023!

The 62nd Annual Swallows Day Parade allowed select motorized units and some specialty horseless carriages into the parade for the first time in history. Thank you to all of our entries who helped to fill the void left by our missing horses and helped keep it interesting and entertaining!
