Do You Make Cascarones?

Hey Santa Barbara, Nick Welsh is cracked up over cascarones.

He’s looking for people who make cascarones, those wonderfully messy confetti eggs that get cracked by the millions on unsuspecting heads every Fiesta. He’s part of a team making a documentary film on the subject and would love to interview anyone making cascarones now or ever did so at one time.

If you feel like talking, call Nick Welsh at The Santa Barbara Independent at 965-5205 ext. 138, or email him at
