Fiesta 2006

The Santa Barbara Independent – August 3, 2006

Old Spanish Days Are Here Again

Fiesta had its share of colorful characters, like the legendary Skip Shalhoob, known for showing up all over town on parade day on horseback, dressed like an Indian and bare-chested, Westwick said. “A hell of a horseman. Everybody in town knew him.”

But, Powers pointed out, “We don’t really have characters like Shalhoob anymore.” The rest agreed. Back in the 1940s, ’50s, ’60s, and ’70s, parade day was a time to let it all hang out, and drinking on the street was permitted.
