Last week in our blog we talked about Mijas and its fantastic “Tapas Route”.This week we will talk again about this beautiful white village as the Fair of Mijas will start next Friday the 7th of September.
From the 7th till the 11th of September Mijas will be celebrating its annual fair so locals and visitors will have a few days to make the most of this beautiful and enjoyable traditional event.
There will be musical performances in the evening and also a big variety of activities like local brass band concerts, flamenco dancing shows and the traditional beauty contest “Miss Mijas 2012”
On the 7th of September there is a traditional parade of “giants” and “cabezudos” (typical carnival figures with a very large head). The local brass band will join them and all together will march through the streets from 5:30 p.m, captivating children and visitors.
The 8th is the most important day of the fair as the Parade for la Virgen de la Peña (patron saint of Mijas) takes place around 9:30p.m
