Fiesta Flower Girls Set the Stage for Old Spanish Days

117 girls gather for a last run-through as Santa Barbara gets in Fiesta spirit

Fiesta Flower Girls converged on the Santa Barbara County Courthouse Sunken Garden on Saturday morning in one of the first events of the 2012 Santa Barbara Old Spanish Days Fiesta.

This year, 117 girls are participating as Flower Girls, which represent Fiesta at the opening night ceremony Wednesday at the Santa Barbara Mission, as well as Friday’s El Desfile Histórico (Historical Parade) and Saturday’s 82nd Annual El Desfile De Los Niños (Children’s Parade).

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!
