Fiesta Trivia Answer!
updated: Jul 27, 2014, 11:36 AM

By the Dedicated Staff of edhat.com

Old Spanish Days in Santa Barbara has a lot of traditions, but did you name the correct 3 that started 65 years ago? Find out the answer!

2014 El Presidente Dennis Rickard

As we mentioned before, this year's Fiesta celebration is special because our El Presidente is Dennis Rickard, who is the son of the 1949 El Presidente, John T. Rickard. The trivia question we asked on Saturday was, what are three current Old-Spanish Days traditions that started in 1949? Edhat subscribers guessed everything from the El Desfile Historico Parade to the El Mercado.

Question
What are three current Old-Spanish Days traditions that started in 1949?

Answers
1. The Flower Girls - Celebrating 65 years as ambassadors of Fiesta
2. The Spirit of Fiesta - The very first Spirit, Lia Parker, is this year's Grand Marshall
3. La RecepciĆ³n del Presidente, which takes place TODAY at at the DoubleTree Resort. Buy your tickets now!

The lucky subscriber who guessed all three traditions correctly is... FUNTIMESB! Congratulations, you have won yourself a sharp looking edhat t- shirt to proudly display your Fiesta knowledge this week. Two edhat subscribers, Remarker and Stimson, were so close by guessing 2/3 answers correctly.
