THE most colourful of Torrevieja’s events, the May Fair, was inaugurated last night (Wednesday) and continues through until Sunday.
Second only to the Ferias in Andalucia itself, in size and spectacle, this is one event offers something for everyone.
The May Fair has returned to its traditional setting in the Port area, where you will be able to enjoy sevillanas and eat at its marquees.
Showtime is at 9.00pm most evenings and entrance to the fair is free, although tickets are required for the seated area, if you wish to enjoy the performances in a little more comfort.
If you have not visited the Fair before, put it in your diary now, as this is one of the most colourful fiestas in Torrevieja and includes a display of horses and carriages on Saturday and Sunday, singing and dancing each evening.
Tonight, Thursday, May 10, 9.00pm, there is a performance by the local dance academy Paya´s and their flamenco group.
On Friday, May 11, 9.00 pm, the Rosy Sancho dance academy will start the evening followed at 11.00 pm by a concert by El Arrebato. Saturday, May 12 is an earlier start and a different location because at noon, a special Mass is held in the Inmaculada’s Archpriest’s Church, sung by the Rociero choir.
The Horses and Carriages then Parade up to the door of the church, give a welcome to authorities and the congregation and then parade back to the fair area.
The Spanish horse riders will circuit the arena until around 4.00pm.
Saturday’s evening entertainment starts at 9.00pm with a performance by the Lola Morales dance academy and at10.30pm there is the Concert II concurso de Copla, for you enjoyment.
Don’t forget that you receive all this with free admission, so it’s great value for money! But Saturday night does not end there because at midnight Grupo Flamenco Azahara will perform.
On Sunday, May 13, the horses return to perfrom at noon, until about 4.00pm. At 9.00pm there is a performance from the Maria del Angel dance academy and at11.30pm there is the closing of the May Fair with the final concert by the Rociero choir and the Masa Coral José Hodar choir.
It’s all for free and great fun for all the family at Torrevieja’s May Fair.
