   La Primavera takes its name from a one-time pageant in the spring of 1920 that celebrated the heritage of Santa Barbara. The modern-day La Primavera event dates from 1972 when 500 people came to a fund-raising steak dinner at the Earl Warren Show grounds. Primavera embodies the spirit of the old Spanish days of the 1820s to 1860s when people welcomed travelers into their homes and celebrated their arrival by holding parties (fiestas) in their honor.
   Today it symbolizes renewal of friendships and builds excitement for in August. Fiesta itself had its beginnings in 1924, when a group of prominent business people decided to take some of the elements of the La Primavera pageant, i.e. colorful costumes, singing and Spanish and Mexican dances and create what we know now as Santa Barbara's Old Spanish Days-Fiesta.
