VELEZ-MALAGA’S feria started Tuesday with the opening speech by flamenco dancer Antonio Guerra. This year’s feria will last until Sunday and has a budget of €100,000.

Several concerts are planned, including Macaco from Barcelona.  Singer Antonio Cortes from Nerja will give a charity concert on Saturday. The benefits will be donated for the new sculpture of religious group La Pollinica, mayor Francisco Delgado explained. 

A novelty in the feria will be a mixed bullfighting festival on Saturday, which will include fighting on horseback. A total of five young bulls will be fought by matadors from the town and from other provinces.
