SANTA BARBARA, Calif. - You can't have Old Spanish Days Fiesta without El Mercado del Norte. The free mercado at Las Positas and State Street offers a bit of everything for the entire family and it's a good spot to escape those downtown crowds.
Kids can enjoy carnival rides and other attractions, and for the parents, the Crazy Horse Cantina--for icy cold beer and margaritas and live entertainment. There's even a dance floor that lights up in the evenings.
Visitors can also enjoy Fiesta foods with a plethora of vendors throughout the food court.
"Come for the fun and the food, stay for the music and dancing," states Old Spanish Days.
El Mercado del Norte is located in Mackenzie Park at the corner of State Street and Las Positas Road and it's open from 11:00 a.m. to 11:00 p.m.
