Photos: Swallows Send-off Party

The 16th Annual Vintage Event took place at Mission San Juan Capistrano.

Adios, swallows. To mark the birds' seasonal migration to Argentina, the San Juan Capistrano Chamber of Commerce hosted a Farewell to the Swallows party Saturday.

Dozens of nearby restaurants and wineries were on hand to offer a taste of their signature fare. A silent auction, raffle and casino-style tables raised money for the Chamber, Visitor's Center Foundation and the Mission's Adopt-A-Class program.

The swallows are expected to return in the spring.

Best event of the year. All our SJC friends were there. The band rocked , my arms hurt from putting them up in the air and of course the food!

The food was great. My favorites were the great selections from Bell Collina Golf Club in San Clemente. Also the blue cheese, bacon wrapped dates from Harlows here in Capo.
