Not even the threat of rain during this year’s Feria, amazing stuff. Good crowd at the Feria de Dia in Plaza Tutti Frutti, bit like it used to be at weekends a few years ago, packed.
The daytime Feria celebrations have been taking place in Plaza Tutti Frutti, calle Antonio Millón and surrounding streets, although by far the most popular area has been Plaza Tutti Frutti itself.
The Junior Nerja Feria Queen 2013 is Mirian Cid García, with Judit Delgado Álvarez as First Lady and Alexandra Urbano del Río as Second lady. The title of Caballero Infantil 2013 went to Enrique Herrero Delgado, with José Manuel Platero Marfil as Primer Caballero and Cristian Prados Torres as Segundo Caballero.
As usual the will be a Youth Information Point set up at the Feria to provide information about the harmful effects caused by the consumption of drugs, how to prevent unwanted pregnancies and sexually transmitted diseases and other topics. The information point will be located in the Civil Protection booth and will be open on Friday and Saturday from 23:00.
A bit of a scorcher today and plenty of people on Torrecilla beach. Some nice waves developed for the surfers, but it also mean’t that the sea came quite far in, overrunning the sunbed area. Not that anyone was bothered.
The decorations are going up in calle Antonio Millón and Plaza Tutti Frutti ready for the start of Feria tomorrow night. The area should be buzzing during the daytime as from Thursday.
The Feria del Rosario has started in Fuengirola, continuing until next Saturday, and the Council is determined to maintain a very ‘Andalucian’ character to the event.
