Torrox Christmas fête is back on the street
Wednesday, November 24, 2021 @ 8:33 PM

AFTER a two-year absence, Torrox's huge Christmas fête will be back on the streets over the December bank holiday week – meaning residents and visitors can still do some festive shopping even when everywhere is shut.

Good news for the workforce, but inconvenient for consumers, this year's Constitution Day (December 6) and Day of the Immaculate Conception (December 8) fall on a Monday and a Wednesday – and many employees who are able to do so will take Tuesday, December 7 as annual leave, giving them a full five days to get away for a pre-Christmas break.

To this end, anyone outside Torrox (Málaga province) who is hoping to get to the fayre should allow plenty of extra time, as traffic is likely to be heavy nationwide in coastal and countryside directions and, on the Wednesday night, heading away from the coast towards larger inland cities.

Unless you live in a big city, you are likely to find your local supermarkets and smaller shops shut on both days, so you should make sure you stock up the fridge on Saturday, December 4 and again on Tuesday, December 7 – or check online whether a store near you is operating at reduced hours.

Given that there are only 17 days between the Immaculate Conception of Jesus Christ and his birth on December 25, leaving very little time to buy gifts for family and friends to celebrate the Messiah's coming, Torrox's traditional festive market is a great place to start ticking items off the list and beat the last-minute rush.
