Sevillanas of Pilar de la Horadada which will include a tourist train for the neighbours to the fairgrounds
In Pilar de la Horadada is all set and ready so that when on May 2nd the gates to the Fairgrounds are opened to inaugurate the 2nd Sevillanas Fair of the municipality, the pilareños can enjoy the party that, although it has only one previous edition, it has become already a landmark of the local party-programming.
This year the Fair will feature an important novelty -the implementation of a tourist train, with six stops in the county, that will bring the neighbours to the fairgrounds. The Councillor for Fiestas, Asuncion Sanchez, explained the desire of the council that residents can enjoy the party and not have to take their vehicles. This translates into a significant reduction in traffic and parking problems so common in these events.
The Sevillanas Fair will be located in the exhibition center, located in the park Raimundo Benedicto, from 2 to 5 May and will have 26 stalls, 8 bars, 2 churrerías and more than twenty activities scheduled after the official opening on Thursday night, May 2nd.
Activities at the Sevillanas Fair
On Friday the 3rd the little ones will be the stars of ‘Children’s Day’ with a wide range of activities planned especially for them. But also throughout the Fair they will enjoy a specially designated area in which the monitors will prepare innumerable surprises for them.
On Sunday 5th will be held the parade whose target is the offering of flowers to the Virgin of Pilar. Also coinciding with Mother’s Day Party the councillor proposes mothers and children to participate in the photo contest. Mothers dressed in Flamenco attire and accompanied by their children who come to the official photocall of the Fair may win a professional photo shoot.
In this edition the Sevillanas Fair will also have a Flamenco costume parade, a horse parade, singing and dancing performances and a spectacular Sevillanas contest in two categories – amateur and children- with a budget of 300 euros in prizes.
