La Semana Blanca in Marbella is week of school holidays for the kids in Malaga province. It is chosen by the autonomous community of Malaga as the week of holidays to to compensate for the local ferias (holidays) that occur during the summer break.  Semana Blanca in Marbella is essentially a week chosen by the government to make up for other holidays which were missed due overlap with local festivals.  It's great to live somewhere where they make sure you don't maximise your holiday time!

La Semana Blanca takes place during the last week of February and sometimes during the first week of March, and it always includes Dia de Andalucia (Andalucia Day).
