Malaga Summer Fair - daytime
Hundreds of people take to the streets of the city’s historic centre in Mid August, which are beautifully decorated and food, drink and trinket stalls are set up. Shops and businesses close and the classy pedestrian shopping street, Calle Marques de Larios, and surrounding area are transformed for the duration of the celebrations. Soak in the wall-to-wall swishing flamenco dresses, gleaming Andalusian horses, music and spontaneous dancing and you understand something of the Andalusian love of life and ability to party.
Malaga Summer Fair - night time
The Feria de Noche is an immense precinct to the west of the MA-20 by-pass motorway near the Palacio de Congresos building where various associations install their 'casetas' - large huts or booths for entertainment and refreshment, where old and young alike meet up in laughing gossiping circles, surrounded by swirling dancers and waiters rushing around tripping over babies and young children and making sure that everyone is continually topped up with fino and 'tapas'. The casetas are much more open to the public those in Seville. As long as you are dressed (anything from smart casual upwards), ask the dorman politely and you can enter. The 'Caseta municipal' has a wide range of acts and live music, most are free except for some headline acts.
