Santa Barbara's De La Guerra Plaza is home of one of Fiesta's "Mercados," or marketplaces which serves up all kinds of food.

It’s been a tough few months for Ventura and Santa Barbara Counties in the wake of the Thomas Fire, the Montecito debris flow, and most recently the Holiday brush fire north of Goleta.
