The Santa Barbara Solstice Workshop is full of fun and creative energy in this final week before the parade. And YOU can be a part of it!

If you think the parade is fun to watch, it is even more fun to help create the floats and costumes and to participate in every way possible.

Many ensembles can use people in the parade as performers and also to help push floats.

The workshop is at the corner of Ortega and Garden streets in Santa Barbara. It is open afternoons and early evening every day now. Come by and see the excitement, energy and creativity. And feel free to lend a hand!

Everyone is welcome!

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!
