Santa Barbara is ready to Fiesta!

Ask the locals and anyone will tell you that Santa Barbara's Old Spanish Days , or Fiesta, is a holiday larger than Christmas itself. Celebrating the Spanish heritage of the town, Fiesta is one of my favorite times of year as well. A week packed with equestrian events, Spanish dancing, authentic food and cracking cascarones over friends' heads. 

If you're in Santa Barbara or heading our way, don't miss my favorite Fiesta events:    the parade, Nights of Gaiety, and the De la Guerra marketplace. This year I'm also committed to hopping onto a few of the historical tours :)
