It is mid-August and this time of year is when the city of Malaga celebrates its fair.
This year the Fair of Malaga will start on Thursday the 15th of August, which is also a national bank holiday, and it will be on until Saturday the 24th.
Although the dates can vary a bit the fair is always on in mid-August as it commemorates the reconquest of Malaga by the Catholic Monarchs on the 19th of August 1487.
The Fair of Malaga is one of the most awaited events of the year not only by locals but also by visitors.
This amazing festival still has a traditional side even if it is quite cosmopolitan and international due to the big number of visitors from all over the world who visit the city willing to enjoy it.
