Families Invited to Participate in Children’s Fiesta Parade

Santa Barbara parade gets rolling at 10 a.m. Aug. 6 on State Street

The City of Santa Barbara Parks & Recreation Department is accepting entry forms for participation in the Children’s Fiesta Parade on Saturday, Aug. 6.

Now in its 81st year, this community tradition continues for another generation of children. Families who have never participated before will be joined by families who have participated for dozens of generations.

Parents create and decorate their own floats, carts and wagons for their children. There are no motorized or battery-operated vehicles used in the parade; only foot power is allowed.

Participants dress in colorful Spanish and Mexican costumes, and chickens, goats, ponies and dogs also participate.

An entry can be one family of three, a family of siblings and all the cousins, an entire neighborhood or special clubs/groups. There is room for every child in the parade.

The public is invited to view the parade starting at 10 a.m. Aug. 6 on State Street.

Entry forms can be picked up at the Recreation Administration building, 620 Laguna St., or by email request to .(JavaScript must be enabled to view this email address). For more information, click here or call 805.564.5418.

— Kathleen Sullivan is the marketing coordinator for the City of Santa Barbara Parks & Recreation Department.

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!
