August 7, 2014 - Cascarones Confetti

Old Spanish Days may be over until next year but there is still evidence of the celebrations in the streets of downtown Santa Barbara. Edhat subscriber Beachbummer sent in photos of cascarones and wondered just how many of these colorfully decorated confetti eggs were cracked this year during Fiesta. Beachbummer guesstimated 100K; do you agree? Go here to see what fellow edhatters are saying.

In local news, Adams Elementary School is starting construction of a new library, Patti Gutshall went to the Ventura County Fair and shared photos of Deep Purple, and edhatters talked about a small aircraft flying low over Mission Canyon Heights. Read these stories and more, below.
