It's Fiesta (Old Spanish Days) time here in Adobe Disneyland! It all begain in the 20's...and in 1935, the Gumm Sisters starred in a little short Oscar Winning film highlighting our little festival, La Fiesta de Santa Barbara.

I love going down to "El Mercado" and picking up a fish taco (or two) and a couple of churros. The delights: The dancing people (flamenco and folklorico), the dancing horses, palominos galore, the colors, the smells, the music. The hellishness: Los borrachos, crowds, trash, tourista drivers.

But...it has always been a love-hate relationship with Fiesta and Santa Barbarians. After running away after all these years, like Craig Smith, Esq., I'm staying this time around and enjoying the sights, sounds and tastes.

Viva La!
