Between five and ten thousand people are expected to camp out on the lawn in front of the Mission for the entertainment.

Tomorrow night, the first of three nights of entertainment will take place at the Santa Barbara County Courthouse’s Sunken Gardens.

Other Fiesta highlights include the Historical Parade, in downtown Santa Barbara beginning at noon on Friday, and the Children’s Parade, which features hundreds of costumed kids, starting at 10 a.m. Saturday.
