Los Niños de las Flores visit local retirement homes, police, and fire stations while representing Old Spanish Days Fiesta.

On Tuesday, the "flower children" representing Fiesta brought cheer to local senior citizens at Samarkand retirement community, Valle Verde, and Garden Court.

Lia Parker, Old Spanish Day's first-ever Spirit of Fiesta, was also greeted by the children.

A Santa Barbara City Fire Station, Police Station, and City Council were also part of the annual tour.

Fiesta officially begins at 11:00 a.m. on Wednesday. Learn more at www.oldspanishdays-fiesta.org for more information on events.

Those children are one of the best traditions of Fiesta. The Flower Girls started in 1948 and now they are going to include boys. Last night at the Mission rehearsal there was one boy included.
