THE RETURN OF THE SWALLOWS CELEBRATION at the Mission in San Juan Capistrano

March marks the return of the famous swallows to San Juan Capistrano and the coming of spring!  The swallows leave in October and return in March every year.

The Mission is holding its world renowned celebration of this event on Saturday, March 19, 2011.  The event will include the ringing of the historic bells, guest lecturer on cliff swallows, music performances, historic fashion show and as always the beautiful gardens of the mission can be viewed.

Is this a neat mission to visit? We might just have to make the trip because it's beautiful!

I love to go to see the gardens. This mission is known as the jewel of the missions because of its beauty. These buildings are centuries old but remain as ruins today as they were felled by an earthquake in 1812.

It is definitely worth a visit.
