Hundreds of people made their way along State Street for the annual Santa Barbara Veterans Day Parade Saturday morning, as military aircraft made loud flyovers above town. 

The parade participants included local veterans, community organizations, elected officials and military vehicles.

Everyone headed from Sola Street down to the Veterans Memorial Building at 112 West Cabrillo Blvd. along the waterfront. 

Saturday's parade was one of many local Veterans Day events in Santa Barbara County this year. 

The parade and flyovers were sponsored by the Pierre Claeyssens Veterans Foundation.

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!
