It appears that we have been invited to take part in this year's August Fiesta but have not organised anything so far.
Each year different neighbourhood groups called Camparsas parade through the streets of the town in fancy dress. The participants obviously go to a lot of trouble choosing a theme and costumes for the event.
If we are to take part we will have to come up with a theme and start preparing costumes. One suggestion was that we should parade as Guy Fawkes but that might just give the locals the idea that we are about to blow the town up!
So we have to think of something less threatening, possibly English but not trying to overshadow the essence of the parade.
Much scratching of heads followed by a lot of stitching is required.
