Malaga in August is quite possibly the best place to be. For 8 days the city is transformed into one great street party. An explosion of fireworks did signify the start of the feria which incorporates sherry, dancing and singing, local food, the Romería with the elegant Andaluz horses, the fairground and the colourful crowds in traditional flamenco dress. During the day, the atmosphere is lively with the streets of Malaga´s beautiful old town packed with visitors and locals alike. Women of all ages can be seen walking through the city in their frilled flamenco dresses, and don’t be surprised if they suddenly start dancing to the music of one of the bands that line the main shopping street, Calle Larios.
The fun is infectious and you may just find yourself dancing alongside them. In the evening, the action moves to the Feria ground with casetas offering entertainment and refreshment with bright lights and booming music all over. The party continues until the early hours of the morning.
