Was it flamenco festival ?

Last year when I was in benalmadena, there was some sort of party in paloma park , everyone dressed in flamenco dresses, and matadors on horse back and on floats. It was Sunday June 17.

It was our last day of our Hols, does anyone know what it was and is it an annual event?

It sounds like the Romeria, San Juan. Yes it's every year around that time.

Followed by the Feast of San Juan. Big firework display on the night of the 24th June followed by the fair for 5 days at the side of Paloma Park.

Isn't San Juan always on the 24th? The firework displays are fabulous! Always enjoy watching them whenever we can.

Hi, thanks for your replies, this was on the 17 June, last year (our last day)

So was this the first day of a week long celebration for San juan, and will it start again that date this year,which would now be a Monday? Sorry for my ignorance, just like to enjoy local events .
