THAT festive feel is slowly creeping into the air and a number of towns along the coast are turning their Christmas lights on this week.
Marbella will be first out of the gates with lights being officially turned on this evening (Thursday) at 7.30pm both in Avenida Miguel Cano in the city centre and Calle Quevedo in Nueva Andalucia.
After the switch is flicked and the lighting brought to life, the municipal nativity scene in Parque de la Alameda and Santa’s house in Paseo de la Alameda will be declared open.
Entertainment including games and dancing are to follow to give all the family a great start to the season.
Tomorrow, Friday November 28 there is a wide choice of towns switching their lights on to choose from including Malaga City, Fuengirola and Estepona.
For those that fancy heading to the capital the official switching on will be at 6pm at the Plaza de la Constitucion, although the lights in Calle Larios at 7.30pm promise to be worth seeing.
A concert organised by Cadena 100 radio and Malaga Council starting at 7.30pm will complete the evening.
Fuengirola is offering a busy schedule with the municipal nativity scene at the town hall due to be opened at 6.15pm, followed by lights being switched on in Plaza de España. Once the lights are on, the Christmas market will be declared open.
People close to Estepona need to head for the Juan Carlos I roundabout near the new boulevard to see the lights being switched on at 7.30pm.
