Feria Internacional de los Pueblos 2012 - FuengirolaThis coming weekend, Fuengirola celebrates one of the most important events in its calendar: The “Feria Internacional de losPueblos” (International People’s Fair).

This unique fair has grown to become a reference at local, regional and even international level. From the 28th April to the 1st May, the Fuengirola fair ground will be home to a fun and multicultural event for all the family.

Last year, this same event managed to attract almost 1 million visitors! The town hall hopes to equal this impressive figure this year, thereby serving as a perfect stage to promote the virtues of Fuengirola and its multicultural population.

The fair will open to the public from 1:00 pm to 4:00 am – plenty of time for visitors to make their way around all the ‘casetas’ (stands) representing the countries taking part in the event. Each ‘caseta’ will be colourfully decorated with flags and other traditional items from each country. You’ll come across natives dressed in typical costumes, lots of music and dancing and you’ll also have the chance to purchase products and delicious food from each country.

The following countries and regions will be taking part in this year’s fair and will all have their own stands: Germany, Australia, Argentina, Andalucia, Bolivia, Brazil, Colombia, Cuba, Cadiz, Egypt, United States, Extremadura, France, Finland, Greece, Galicia, Hawaii, Italy, Ireland, India, Japan, Mexico, Morocco, Norway, Peru, Paraguay, Dominican Republic, Romania, Uruguay and Venezuela.

Make sure you don’t miss the traditional street parade which will take place on Sunday 29th April at 12:00 pm. All the countries exhibiting at the fair will be taking part; it promises to be a fun spectacle full of colour, music and dancing :-)
