Fair of Fuengirola 2018

01loka

As many of you might already know the Fair of Fuengirola starts this week on Saturday, the 6th of October.

For this reason and because we love sharing our lovely traditions with you on Friday, the 5th of October, Hotel Florida Spa has organised at 11:30 A.M. by the pool a great free activity about the fair specially for you!

In it we will give you information about the fair, we will inform you about what is going on in town and at the fairground, we will explain you about the traditional flamenco dress and the accessories that go with it and we will explain you what to eat and drink at the fairground during the fair.

Regarding the official programme of the fair we would like to highlight and recommend the flamenco mass in honour of Virgen del Rosario. Every year this is held on the 7th of October at 10:00 on Constitution Square, right in the city centre.  This mass is not a common one; it does have the wow factor as it is quite festive and most of the many who attend it come wearing beautiful flamenco dresses.

If you want to have fun with us and get some information about the fair, we would love to see you on Friday at 11:30 in our Snack Bar. By the way, besides good info we will also give a free glass of rebujito, the most popular drink of the fair, to all guests who attend our fun special activity.

Enjoy the fair at Hotel Florida Spa!!

23rd International Festival of Fuengirola

23huhti

Are you currently having a great holiday with us at Hotel Florida Spa? If that is the case, you can consider yourself lucky as this week that has just started is one of the most important and awaited in Fuengirola.

What makes this week so special is the International Festival of Fuengirola, one of the most popular events in Costa del Sol.

As usual the festival will be hosted at the fairground, and this year it will be on from Friday the 27th of April till Tuesday the 1st of May.

Tuesday the 1st of May is in fact a bank holiday in Spain as it is International Workers Day, so many will surely visit the festival to make the most of its last day.

The International Festival of Fuengirola is one of the most consolidated and successful events in Costa del Sol as this will be its 23rd edition.

Although it has been hosted for many years, there is always something new and exciting about it. This year for example Puerto Rico, South Africa and Ukraine will participate in it for the first time.

The fairground will home a total of 33 countries from across the globe, so this is no doubt the perfect opportunity to discover their local dishes, culture and typical music and dances without leaving Costa del Sol.

While the festival is on, from 1:00 P.M to 4:00 A.M there will be lots of things going on and lots  to do at the fairground, though the most expected day is always Saturday as it is when the traditional parade takes place. This stunning parade will start around 11:30 A.M in Plaza de España (town centre) and will arrive to the fairground at around 1:00 P.M.

Same as in previous editions there will be a free entry International Trade Fair that will contain 41 stalls where you will have the chance to buy food products.

Do not miss the International Festival of Fuengirola! You will surely have a brilliant time!!
