Feria fun in Malaga
The annual Malaga Fair officially starts tomorrow (Saturday) and millions are expected to attend from around the Costa del Sol and the rest of Spain.
Tonight (Friday) there will be the traditional fireworks display in La Malagueta and concert in the Paseo del Parque featuring 'Efecto Mariposa'.
As usual the fair will be split between the daytime activities in the city centre, primarily along Calle Larios, all the way up to the Plaza de la Merced, and the evening fairground festivities which traditionally attracts the younger crowds take place at the Recinto Ferial (municipad fairground).

This year Malaga City Hall is trying to reintruce a more traditional feel to the daytime festivities, crackingdown on drinking alcohol on the scity streets and general antisocial behaviour.
"in line with austerity measures, the city hall is also cutting back on spending," said Alan Wentworth-Harley, the boss at leading luxury propery company One Marbella. "The are hoping to save more than €440,000 on stagin, entertainment among others."
The feria will continue daily until Sunday August 19.
"The start of the feria coincides with the expected heatwave from Africa which is expected to send the mercury soaring above 40 degrees celcius in parts of the region," reminded Alan Wentworth-Harley. "So it is recommended that people drink plenty of water - especially if consuming alcohol - and stay in the shade when possible."

This businesses in the Muelle One area of the port hope to get a piece of the action in this swanky marina which opened at Christmas. But it isn't just fairgoers arriving by land  this year.
"Some 24,000 cruise ship passengers along with 7,500 crew will arrive in Malaga in 8 ships during the feria," said Alan Wentworth-Harley.
"Malaga City is often forgotten by foreign residents and tourists," said Alan Wentworth-Harley. "But with its incredibly rich history, excellent museums and top class restaurants it is yet another reason why so many people a looking to buy a property in nearby cities such as Marbella."
"Marbella itself has enough to offer what anyone could possibly want at their disposal," said Alan Wentworth-Harley. "But there is an index of possibilities just a short drive from Marbella, and the fantastic Malaga feria is definitely one of them!"

Estepona Sun Kisses Presenter’s Cheek with Warm, Spotlight Embrace!

With the sun casting its radiant, daily spotlight overhead, Estepona rolls out its golden sands as a welcome mat, beckoning “A Place in the Sun” celeb, Jasmine Harman, and her delightful troop - husband and kiddos included - into its warm embrace for a delightful act titled: New Beginnings. Jasmine, no stranger to the tantalizing dance between dwellings and dreamers with her two-decade waltz on Channel 4, has been the fairy god-presenter, sprinkling home-finding magic dust from Portugal to Malta to Cyprus. Yet, after years of orchestrating homey happily-ever-afters, she’s chosen to pen her own, right in the heart of sun-soaked Estepona. “It was a canvas of years in the painting,” Jasmine confided in Hello! Magazine with a smile akin to one indulging in a delightful secret. “With each year gently nudging us towards craving more moments stitched together with family laughter and wrapped in quality time. And thus, with a dash of courage and a sprinkle of adventure, our decision bloomed, o

"Spain and England's World Cup Waltz: The Pinnacle Plays of the Pitch!"

 "La Roja and the Lionesses set for a Down Under Duel in Sydney! Prepare for a football fiesta as Spain's La Roja squares off against England's Lionesses at the iconic Stadium Australia this sunny Sunday, 20 August. The stakes? Just the little matter of the Women's World Cup title. For both teams, it's uncharted territory. They've danced around the finals before, but never quite made it to the last tango. Spain's road to the finals was nothing short of a nail-biter. With a thrilling 2-1 victory over Sweden, where the scoreboard remained dormant until the last 10 minutes, La Roja proved they love a little late-game drama. As for the Lionesses, they showed their mettle by taming the co-hosts, Australia, with a captivating 3-1 win. Now, with the world watching, both squads are on the prowl, each looking to pounce and claim their first-ever Women's World Cup crown. May the best team win (and the fans get to enjoy some fantastic football)!"

Marbella's Shoreline Set for a 'Sand-sational' Upgrade!

With a 'can-do' spirit that would make a sand castle builder proud, the Marbella town hall is steering a beach revitalisation project right off the pages of a fairy tale. Like a magnificent sand migration, the process kicked off at Las Chapas-Alicate and will sweep through Casablanca, La Fontanilla, and San Pedro Alcántara.  Mayor Ángeles Muñoz let slip that a mountainous 120,000 cubic metres of sand would be borrowed from the town hall’s own treasure chest to finance this sandy renaissance. "The central government seems content playing in the shallow end, leaving us to dive deep for a definitive coastline stabilisation solution," Mayor Muñoz said, clearly not one to bury her head in the sand. In a stroke of midnight genius, the work is taking place under the cloak of darkness - from midnight until 8am - sparing sun-seekers and local business the sight of bulldozers invading their tranquil beaches. Mayor Muñoz confessed that the project couldn't have hit the groun
