Sevilla's April Fair brings colour, music, fun and 'flamenco' to the streets for a week
30 April 2017 @ 21:06

SEVILLA'S famous April Fair kicks off today (Saturday) with over a week of all that's stereotypical about Spain: castañets, red polka-dot dresses, flamenco and sevillana dancing, cantaores, bailaores, hand-clapping and gypsy guitars.

The southern city's biggest tourist attraction after its Semana Santa or Easter parades, the Feria de Abril – something of a misnomer, given that all bar the first two days of it takes place in May – sees the streets lined with colourful stalls selling food, drink and crafts, plus live music, typical local dishes for tasting, on-street entertainment, fireworks, parades and horses.

Millions of visitors from every continent descend on Sevilla for April Fair week, a feel-good festival that brings to life all the urban myths about Spain in full colour, life, cheesiness and fun.
