Garden Street Academy's 9th annual Carnival and Music Festival is set for 2-5 p.m. Oct. 1 on the school campus, 2300 Garden St. in Santa Barbara.

The carnival, which is free to enter, will feature a variety of live performances on the musical stage including Santa Barbara’s Boom Chaka, the Garden Street Academy staff band Staff Infection, and the original Garden Street Academy Jazz Band.  

A $12 wristband purchase provides all-inclusive and unlimited access to vintage-style boardwalk games, bouncy houses, facepainting, a mini-salon (including henna tattoos, nails, hairstyling including tinsel, braiding and spray color), UCSB climbing wall, 3D printing showcase, speed stacking demo and more.

Try your luck at raffle prizes such as Disneyland Park Hoppers family pack, theater tickets and restaurant gift cards.

Refreshments available for purchase features a barbecue meal prepared by the South Coast Kiwani’s Club, a beer tent, Pinkberry booth for frozen treats, popcorn, pizza and cotton candy.
Proceeds from the carnival support Garden Street Academy’s Scholarship Fund. GSA would like to thank carnival sponsors Bartlett, Pringle & Wolf and Willis Towers Watson for their generous sponsorship.

“This event is a school community favorite. We are looking forward to breaking all previous attendance records and are thrilled to have the Santa Barbara community on our campus,” commented Lisa Leffler, a Garden Street Academy parent and Carnival Organizer.

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!
