Feria (fair-e-ya): Fair
On Saturday, I made my first trip outside of Malaga, and I went
all the way about 40 minutes, outside of the city by train to a town called Fuengirola. I have a few Auxiliares friends who live in "Fuengi" and they were all really excited about the Feria in Fuengirola. Even though I knew Feria meant "fair," I guess I was expecting some arts and crafts booths, and some food. But when we got there I was shocked to see an all-out "state fair" type carnival, with actual roller coasters, every type of food you can think of, and straight up bars in the middle of the fair.
Legit coconut water.
There were women and girls dressed in these beautiful, traditional (I'm guessing) gowns.
When I said there were bars at the feria, there were full service bars with music and everything!
This girl was definitely enjoying the bar in her beautiful dress :)
Here are some of the rides and lights they had:
I had never seen this before, and I thought it was pretty cool. These were "bubble balls" (like you see at sporting events where people race across the field/court in them), but this time, they were in water!
