Every August the city of Santa Barbara hosts Old Spanish Days, a week long cultural event. Also referred to as Fiesta, one of the highlights is a fantastic equestrian parade. This was my second year to photograph the parade and I got so many great photographs I decided to do a photo essay.
I really like this particular parade. It does everything a parade should do – it’s colorful, it unites the community, it’s cultural, and everyone smiles at you. What’s not to like about a parade?
Read more about Santa Barbara and be sure to check out my other images from Fiesta in the weekly photo challenge posts, Wrong, Fleeting Moments, Growth and Movement.
For information on Fiesta go to Old Spanish Days – Fiesta.
Fiesta 2103 is July 31 – August 4.
I know you want to go now.
