MORE than 3,000 people visited Puerto Marina in Benalmadena for Puerto Terror, a ‘Halloween in March’ event.
Theatre, face-painting, story-telling and a horror walk were the main attractions of the event, which the council organised as part of this year’s project to attract visitors to the marina.
The marina hosts activities almost every weekend, with a Seafood Fair planned for this weekend, March 19-22, and a foreign residents’ cultural event for March 28-29.
The traditional Seafood Fair will be installed under a 1,400-square metre awning within the marina and more than 30,000 visitors are expected.
Mayor Paloma Garcia Galvez explained that the fair, now in its seventh year, has become one of the main food fairs on the Costa del Sol with many local restaurants taking part.
The fair will be open from noon to 5pm and 8pm to midnight today (March 19), tomorrow and Saturday, and from noon to 6pm on Sunday, and a ‘showcooking’ event will take place at noon on Saturday.
