Garden Court to Present Performance by First-Ever and Current Spirits of Fiesta

As Santa Barbara gears up to celebrate its 89th year of Old Spanish Days Fiesta, Garden Court is preparing a Fiesta celebration of its own.

From 5 to 8 p.m. July 25, Garden Court will hold a pre-Fiesta kickoff party featuring a performance by the first-ever Spirit of Fiesta and Garden Court resident, Lia Parker, and the newest Spirit of Fiesta, Corrie Jimenez. The performance will take place at 5:45 p.m.

The event is free and open to the public. Come experience Garden Court’s transformation into Old Spanish Days with handmade decorations, tacos, margaritas, mariachis, and one of the oldest living past El Presidentes, Rudy Castillo.

“We are excited to invite the Santa Barbara community to come and celebrate an unforgettable kick-off to this year’s Fiesta season,” said Chris Tucker, Garden Court executive director. “Witness local history in the making as Santa Barbara’s first ever Spirit of Fiesta and the current Spirit express their lifelong passion for dancing.”

Garden Court residents have also been hard at work making floral garlands and single flower corsages in preparation of Fiesta. Attendees can purchase these items during the event.

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!
