Tracing the history of the Lobero Theatre’s reopening and Old Spanish Days Fiesta
The grand opening of Santa Barbaraʼs rebuilt Lobero Theatre took place on August 4, 1924, with the play Beggar on Horseback. Nine days later, on August 13, 1924 another horse-related event took place just around the corner on State Street, soon to be known as the ﬁrst ofﬁcial Fiesta parade. Given that these two celebrations occurred so close together, was there a connection?
