This year the Santa Barbara Trust for Historic Preservation (SBTHP) once again hosted an entry in the Old Spanish Days Fiesta Parade on August 5, 2016.  This year’s group, like last year’s included a strong contingent of Presidio descendants representing Santa Barbara’s founding families. The descendants were coordinated by SBTHP Genealogy and Descendants Committee Member and Docent Suzi Calderon Bellman. Several docents from La Purisima Mission State Historic Park also participated, along with staff and docents of SBTHP. From all reports, ours was one of the largest walking entries in this year’s parade!
