Viva La Fiesta

Old Spanish Days are a big event in Santa Barbara, and the El Desfile Historico Parade is one of the largest equestrian parades in the country with hundreds of horses and riders (which I am saving for the next post). We’ll start out with the coaches, floats and bands.

The parade is coming up State Street

Coach,...
