GETTING PREPARED: Artwork on display.

VISITORS to Plaza de la Iglesia, in San Pedro de Alcantara, will be able to check out a series of 71 posters detailing the town’s fair and parties (Spanish, Ferias y fiestas), which are to hit the municipality from October 17 to 23.

The promotional material will be on display until October 14, and local Councillors, Manuel Garcia, and Mari Guerra, were on hand to launch the exhibition, which features work by artists from different parts of Spain.

“This demonstrates the great appeal of our fair beyond our borders,” whooped Garcia. “With this exhibition we are kicking off the ‘Sampedreña’ big week in style, we’ll announce the full programme of events in a few days!”


His more subdued partner Ms Guerra, drew attention to the quality of the artwork on display, with a jury set to choose the best for which the winner will receive 900 euros.
