On August 7 2015 the Santa Barbara Trust for Historic Preservation contributed a walking entry in the annual Old Spanish Days Fiesta Parade. This year SBTHP partnered with the California Missions Foundation and positioned our entry between two CMF floats which portrayed historic scenes from the murals at the Santa Barbara County Courthouse.
Our entry included a diverse group of volunteers, from descendants of Santa Barbara Presidio families to docents at La Purísima Mission State Historic Park. A special thanks goes out to our photographers for the event, Suzi Bellman, Rocky Bellman, Mike Imwalle and Alex Gryzwacki.
You can find more photos from the day on our Flickr page here.
