The festival starts off with impressive fireworks, best viewed from Malaga Port. People like to wear traditional flamenco dresses to celebrate, while local and foreign visitors gamely participate with the jubilant activities, drinking, and dancing.

Thousands of people gather for the fair and witness the illumination of buildings and structures in Malaga. Amusement rides are set-up and guests can enjoy roller coaster and ferris wheel rides, which can give you the ultimate aerial view of the Feria. Part of the celebration is bullfighting, which is scheduled within the event.
