SANTA BARBARA, Calif. - The Santa Barbara Westside will change its schedule for the "Weekends on the Westside" promotion and go monthly.
The theme for August will be "Back to School." There will also be a backpack promotion for kids who are starting the new school year.
The weekly event has not had the turnout organizers expected.
They believe it is still a good way to stimulate the businesses and create a stronger sense of community in the area, where many small businesses are located.
The footprint for the event is on San Andres Street from Micheltorena to Sola.
There is no charge.
