Saturday and Sunday will see the parade of horses and carriages taking place from about noon

The festivities councillor in the city of Torrevieja, Lola Sánchez Roca, presented this year´s May Fair fiesta schedule, which begins on Wednesday.

Accompanied by the heads of various associations involved in the event, the details for the show that runs until Sunday 10th of May and was declared of provincial tourism interest, was revealed.

One of the highlights this year is an appearance by Spanish duo “Camela”, who will be performing on Friday evening, but throughout the entire event singers and dancers from across the country will come together to perform at the show.

A cash prize of 2,500 euro will be presented to the winner of the competition “Ciudad de Torrevieja” on Saturday, with cash prizes also up for grabs for second, third, fourth and fifth place.

Throughout the event there will also be horse shows with around 300 horses and 30 carriages taking part, primarily on the Saturday and Sunday, and there will also be a range of food and drink stalls in the harbour area, offering much of the usual menu available in the city but in the surroundings of an event that celebrates and recognised the sevillana traditions and has become a firm favourite in the tourism calendar.

The fair will be opened by the mayor at 9pm on Wednesday evening after which there will follow an evening of hymns, habaneras and dance by the Musical Union of Torrevieja and the Choir and Orchestra Salinas.
The Dance Academy’s Dharma and Lynda Dorado will continue the celebrations from 9pm on Thursday evening and then at 11pm on Friday evening the Spanish duo “Camela”.

The activities will continue all day and well into the night on both Saturday and Sunday with the parade of horses and carriages taking place from about noon on Saturday lunchtime until approximately 4pm. The carriages will tour the city, starting and ending round about the paseo. Much of this will be repeated on Sunday in the port area where there will also be a demonstration of riding.

The grand final of the Sevillanas Contest will be at 7pm on Sunday followed by more performances from local dance troupes including Soul Dance, a group which includes many expatriates. And if you are still in a party mood the event will close just before midnight on Sunday
