This weekend Las Negras is holding its Summer Feria. This is a tiny affair compared with those we have visited in inland towns and villages. The reason is that Las Negras is in permanent fiesta during July and August and the locals are too busy working in the bars, restaurants and shops or servicing holiday apartments to organise a large event.
We strolled through the village at the very early hour of 11pm. The regular bars were busy but the live music they had laid on had yet to start. Not surprising as this would go on all night.
There was a stage set up in the small car park by the beach where a samba band was performing. They were quite good but unfortunately this concert had to stop when the electricity to the stage blew. We hope this was fixed so they were able to continue.
Children’s entertainment consisted of one small ferris wheel and a bouncy castle. Have a look at another reworked image of this – http://coloursofspain.wordpress.com
A few extra fast-food stalls had appeared and there were the usual vendors selling trinkets. Not very exciting, but the village was packed and ready to party.
