2007 Fiesta Guide

Las Noches de Ronda offers flamenco music and dancing under the stars at the Courthouse Sunken Gardens.

Even though August marks the final countdown of summer vacation, at least the month kicks off with a blastFiesta, that is. To help guide you through the miasma of the long weekend celebration, we have put together our annual Fiesta issue. In addition to event listings, we’ve included a timeline and history of Old Spanish Days; Pablo de la Guerra’s groundbreaking 1855 speech calling for the rights of native Californios; facts about the largest horse parade in the country; and a story about flamenco music’s roots.
