AMATA’s Christmas Fair begins today in Altea, where it remains until this Sunday, December 8.The craft fairs that Amata organises feature real craftspeople who only sell what they make themselves. Thirty craftspeople have set up their stall in the Town Hall Square in Avenida Jaime I, parallel to the main N-332 road.They sell pottery, glasswork, wooden and softs toys, leather goods, patchwork, handmade jewellery and all the other items that the public expects of an Amata fair.Of course, all the typical Christmas delicacies are there, too, including cheeses and sausages.There will also be a small tavern with a barbecue and a stall offering waffles, crepes, hot chocolate and mulled wine.With workshops, soap bubbles, table games and a merry-go-round there is something for the children, too, including a lady juggler who is also a stilt-walker and tells stories.At 12 noon, tomorrow Friday, the U3A Calpe choir will be singing Christmas carols. The Christmas Fair is open each day from 11am until 9pm and does not close for lunch although the stalls will close a little earlier on Sunday.
