Romeria of Fuengirola 2019

23syys

Last week here on the blog of Hotel Florida Spa we informed you that the fair of Fuengirola was coming soon, so today we have the pleasure to recommend you not to miss the first of the many fair related events that will take place in our town: The Romeria of Virgen del Rosario.

The Romeria of Fuengirola is always on the Sunday before the start of the fair, so if you have the fortune of being on holiday with us right now try not to miss it as you will get to experience what a traditional Spanish “romeria” is.

This great event will be held on Sunday the 29th of September. It will start at around 9:30 A.M with a beautiful mass in the Virgen del Rosario Church, located in Plaza de la Constitución right in the town centre.

Once the mass is over, beautiful horses and carriages will join the Virgin of Rosario in a procession that will take her from Fuengirola town centre to Parque del Esparragal in Mijas Costa.

There is no better way to get ready for the fair than attending this very special mass, so if you have no plans for Sunday do not forget to note down this cool one on your diary.

We are sure you will really enjoy it!

25th International Festival of Fuengirola

29huhti

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

The event we are talking about 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 Tuesday the 30th of April till Sunday the 5th of May.

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.

The International Festival of Fuengirola is one of the most consolidated and successful events in Costa del Sol and this is why this year we will be celebrating its 25th anniversary.

Although it has been hosted for many years, there is always something new and exciting about it. This year for example Canada and Estonia will participate in it for the first time and Japan and Jamaica will return after being absent last year.

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 when the traditional parade takes place. This year this stunning parade will be on Wednesday the 1st of May, which is a bank holiday in Spain as it is International Workers Day. The 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 some stalls where you will have the chance to all kind of products, including food from different countries

Do not miss the 25th edition of the International Festival of Fuengirola! We are sure you will have a brilliant time!!
