if you are in and around the area of vejer del la fronterra, then you must visit the annual april feria that occurs 10 days after easter. its on this weekend whilst i am here. its a mini version of the seville feria, which if you have never seen is just spectacular, horses and carriages, flamenco dresses and full of colour and splendour; vejer’s feria is held in the new town, which is only 15 mins walk from my house, but mainly consists of a few casitas (tents for eating drinking and dancing) and an enormous fairground! but for 4 nights there will be numerous flamenco shows and horse riding events. the local school children clamber on their floats and there is a procession through the old town to the new town – there are so many festival days in spain, you need to check the calendars before you go so that you can watch them – there is a feria in almost every town in spain at some time of the year – its what makes Spain a wonderful country still steeped in tradition and fun.
