Living in Santa Barbara County has many benefits. One yearly reminder of just how beautiful living on the Central Coast is, is Fiesta. Color fill the flag lined State street, and muti-colored confetti seams to rain from the balconies above. It is a time to remember Santa Barbara's heritage and also to embrace the people and cultures which settled the Central Coast. Dancing, costumes, food, art and craft are all on display and it's time to party. The vibrant colors that fill the streets are my personal favorite part about Fiesta. The amount of color everywhere just makes me smile, and I'm not alone in this feeling. Showcasing vibrant colors actually makes people genuinely happy. The evidence is right on the street. I think this is why color is my favorite part of fiesta, people are just happier. Viva La Fiesta!
