Call for Entries: Holiday Prince & Fairy Art Contest

Kids Six to 10 Asked to Color, Paint, or Draw

The Santa Barbara Downtown Organization is now accepting entries for the annual Holiday Prince & Fairy Art Contest!

Kids ages 6-10 are asked to draw, color or paint a picture of what makes the holiday’s special to them. One boy and one girl will then be invited to participate in the Downtown Holiday Parade as the Holiday Prince & Fairy. Their job is the most important one of all, they ride in a horse drawn carriage at the beginning of the parade and light the 50 foot Community Christmas Tree with a magic wand, signifying the start of the 58th Annual Downtown Holiday Parade and the kick off of the holiday season.
