Mojacar Fiestas

The local people are very welcoming for tourists that want to join in to any fiesta. I would very much recommend going to a Spanish Fiesta as they really know how to party. Each year when a Fiesta takes place the local businesses close, the roads are blocked off, and a street party is set up with food, drink and music in abundance. People of all ages join the party in singing and dancing. In the evening the there is usually a fair ground often on the last night there will be a fireworks display. Sometimes there is a bank holiday after the fiesta for the town to recover!

Annually for 3 days in June there is a Christian and Moors fiesta. This festival celebrates the removal of the Moors from the region. It is a fabulous event, and well worth going to, the local dress in flamboyant costumes, and re-enact key events, including a battle which is urged on by the audience, then true to history the Christians emerge victoriously.
