Spirit of `76 to Host Fourth of July Concert at Courthouse

The event at the Sunken Garden will be free and open to the public

The all-volunteer Spirit of `76 Association has announced that the Santa Barbara Courthouse Sunken Garden will once again be filled with the sounds of traditional music celebrating America’s Independence Day this year.

The concert will take place at 4:30 p.m. Monday, July 4, after the annual Fourth of July parade.

It will be open to the public, and there will be no admission charge. The Santa Barbara County Courthouse is located at the corner of Anacapa and Anapamu streets.

“An extraordinary and memorable experience awaits music-lovers this year,” said Paul Lamberton, president of Spirit of `76. “We are proud to announce that this year’s concert will feature the talents of many of Santa Barbara’s finest musicians.”

The Spirit of `76 Association is perhaps best known for its annual Fourth of July parade on State Street, Flag Day celebration at the Lobero Theatre, and the reintroduction of the fireworks display at West Beach.

The Spirit of `76 is a nonprofit, nonpartisan and nonpolitical organization.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
