Malaga Feria 2010

Malaga Feria 2010

Every year the city of Málaga lights up as it celebrates its week-long fair with live music, dance, traditional food, flamenco, and amusement park rides. This year the Malaga Feria kicks off on August 13 and runs until August 22.


The city is now busy preparing for the Malaga Feria 2010 (Feria de Málaga) with street decorations, flags, fireworks and more. The day fair starts around noon where locals dress up in their finest traditional costumes and parade through the streets meeting friends, having a tapa and kicking up their heels to live flamenco music.

The evening fair is dedicated to the children starting around 8:00pm at the Cortijo de Torres (southwest of the city center). Hundreds of pavilions (caseta) offer dancing and eating to the public, hold music competitions and light up the sky with fireworks displays. Amusement park rides such as bumper cars, merry-go-rounds, haunted houses and roller coasters entice the children to stay up all night. Prices for each ride vary between 2 and 4 euros.
