This does sound like a great time for the whole family. The swallows and their return to Capistrano are famous.

I wish I saw your post earlier, Lee Ann, I forgot about the parade.

In 1971-72, Marco Forster was the only Junior High for the entire area, and most kids arrived via School Bus.  I lived in Laguna Niguel, and the Drivers would take different routes on different days, and on Swallow's Day our Bus Driver would take us through downtown San Juan Capistrano, so we could look out our windows and see all the people.  It was a real treat I'll never forget.
