Fuengirola heats up the holiday weekend with ‘Feria de los Pueblos’

0


THOUSANDS of people of all nationalities gathered in Fuengirola last weekend for the Feria de los Pueblos; an international food festival that celebrates the cultural diversity on the Costa del Sol.
Thirty-three countries and regions put on a show with music and dancing and tantalised taste buds with traditional food and drink.
One of the biggest highlights of the weekend was the massive Argentinian barbeque, with huge cuts of meat draped over the open air fire, served with Chimichurri (a traditional Argentinian sauce for meat).
A representative from Don Gaucho, the company who supplied the Chimichurri sauce, told EWN that over the course of the weekend the Argentinian stall sold 4000 kilogrammes of meat served with a whopping 80 litres of chimichurri!
Whilst adults indulged in everything the vibrant festival had to offer; from fire breathing shows from Hawaii, reggae music from Jamaica and men in Lederhosen serving bratwurst from Germany, the fairground rides kept the kids entertained with bumper cars, swinging boats and cotton candy.
The event attracts a huge amount of media attention and tourism year after year. And this year was no exception. Stalls were visited by the Nigerian ambassador for Spain, Bianca Odumegwu-Ojukwu, and hotels in the area were said to be at 100 per cent occupancy; a true sign of the event’s continuous popularity and success.
