Cruz de Mayo celebration and Balcony Decorating Contest

On Tuesday May 1, 2012 starting at 12:00pm Old Town Marbella will celebrate its first Cruz de Mayo (May Cross) event coinciding with the ‘Concurso de Decoración de Balcones y Fachadas’ - Balcony and Façade Decorating Contest.


Performances from local dance schools will enliven the event, which takes place on Plaza Puente Ronda and Calle Ancha. The winner of the contest will be awarded a dinner at Medium Rare restaurant.

Bars and restaurants in the area will be offering a special tapa + drink price during the celebrations, which include: Lolita, La Cuisine, El Reloj, El Palique, La Piriñaca, Medium Rare, Casanis, La Champañería, Café Ancha and el Cantuso.

The purpose of this celebration is to recover the tradition of celebrating the Cruz de Mayo, which was lost over time, as well as boost the activity and interest in Old Town Marbella.
