Feria in Orihuela

Chief scout, John Thorpe, has passed this information on which may be of interest to you.

I read in this week's Coastrider that Orihuela has a feria starting Friday evening
at 7pm.

The Recinto Ferial is situated passed the Centro de Salud at the junction of
calle Dr Gomez Pardo Rodenas & Calle Pintor Agrasot in the gardens exhibition area.

According to the paper the feria kicks off at 7pm Friday with a dancing display & ends
with a performance of the Spanish song, 'Alma Cruz'. 

Saturday's events start early with a traditional sardine feast & continues with horse &
carriage displays, ending with dancing & singing until 11pm.

Sunday, Mass @ 11.45 followed by a paella competition with trophies for the top 3.

The event ends with the 7.30pm walk to the Sanctuary of the Virgen del Rocio....
can't find that on my map.

Thank you very much for that information John. If you do go remember to laher yourself with insect repellent (see next item on my blog).
