Old Spanish Days Fiesta is officially in full-swing as La Recepción del Presidente welcomed this year's La Presidenta Denise Sanford on Sunday evening.
The Old Spanish Days Board of Directors invited locals to join them at the Hilton Santa Barbara Beachfront Resort. Everyone celebrated the history and excitement of Fiesta with this year's "Celebrate Traditions" theme.
A buffet dinner with ocean views, live dance performances by the 2018 Spirit and Junior Spirit of Fiesta, and dancing the night away to live music from Elements.
It was a great way to welcome this year's La Presidenta and start one of the most exciting weeks in Santa Barbara.
