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!!

The 3 Wise Men are coming!

04tammi

It has been 4 days since we welcomed 2017 and while in the rest of Europe Christmas celebrations ended days ago in Spain we continue celebrating it until the end of this week.

As Spain is traditionally a catholic country, the most common thing is to get presents the night of the 5th of January, or the morning of the 6th of January.

If you are on holiday right now at Hotel Florida Spa you will experience how special this day is to us.

Tomorrow their Majesties the 3 Wise Men will come to Fuengirola in helicopter and land the “Elola” stadium at 4:00 P.M. At 6:00 P.M. their stunning parade will pass through the main streets of Fuengirola and will finish the tour in Avenida Los Boliches.

The 3 Wise Men parade is the most awaited event of the year to children and adults who embrace their inner child for a day. Seeing the Wise men in their stunning floats and grabbing the sweets they throw is one of the best and most endearing Christmas experiences you can have in Spain.

Hotel Florida Spa wishes you a very happy 3 Wise Men Day! We hope tomorrow night your dreams come true!
