Discover Buellton celebrated its 50th anniversary of the Avenue of Flags. In the late 1960’s, Highway 101 was moved from its original location to the lanes that visitors drive through in the present day. On September 28, 1968, California Governor Ronald Reagan dedicated the original lanes of Highway 101 as Avenue of Flags. Buellton celebrated this anniversary with special speeches, a time capsule and light refreshments. This celebration also featured a special keynote address from Michael Reagan, son of President Ronald Reagan.
The 50th anniversary took place on September 22 in Buellton.
