La Feria de Algeciras

June 19, 2010

        Every town of any size celebrates a fair each year.   The most well known “Feria” is the Fair in Sevilla every April but even smaller towns and cities do it up in a their own style.   The nearby town of Algeciras is no exception and we took in the sights on Sunday.

        There was a Saturday parade which we missed.   On Sunday the first full day of the fair nearly everyone was out in their best Spanish outfits to celebrate.    In the above photo a fine looking couple are sporting their fair attire.   Men will wear black slacks, boots and a straight rimed hat.  Women wear their hair with a flower, a comb or both plus massive earrings and fancy dresses with bright colors.
