Colorful dresses

La Fería the San Juan is celebrated all this week around here. It started last Sunday and continues until next Monday. There are a lot of events like concerts, contests, dancing and drinking at the different plazas and at the market place.

Many women put on their traditional colorful dress for this occasion.

Also small girls want to dress up in the nice colorful dresses ...

  5. Hi! I'm new to your blog, I love your photos!!
    I was in Spain not long ago, didn't make it down to Malaga, but I did stay in Sevilla for several days and I couldn't resist to try on one of those gorgeous flamenco dresses... gosh, I felt like a princess! If it hadn't been so heavy (and 400 euro!) I probably would have brought it back to Canada with me!

  6. It's great you take these photos and share them because I don't have a car nor do I drive and it's way too warm for me to walk around outside these days. I get to see what's happening without stepping outside my door! :)

  7. if you put one on i´ll put one on...:)
