The Fair of Los Boliches 2019 and the Day of Virgen del Carmen

15Jul

If you have had the fortune of having stayed with us before this time of year you might already know that these last few and upcoming days are very important in Los Boliches.

From Friday the 12th to Tuesday the 16th of July the Fair of Los Boliches is on, so if right now you are on holiday at Hotel Yaramar, your hotel in Fuengirola, we recommend you visit the fairground as the fair is held there.

Tomorrow, Tuesday the 16th of July is in fact the most important day of this event as it is the day of Virgen del Carmen, the patron saint of Los Boliches.

Although this is celebrated by all locals in Los Boliches it is lived in a different and a more intense way.

Tomorrow in fact at 12:00 P.M. there will be a mass in honour of the Virgin in the Church of Los Boliches. 

Being a man of the sea is a very hard and risky job, so due to the protection they believe the virgin gives them every 16th of July many of them take her out in procession as a way to express their gratitude. 

This procession starts at 8:45 P.M. is considered by many as the most unique and special of the year as it ends with the Virgin in the sea surrounded by small boats and fireworks.

If tomorrow evening you are staying at Hotel Yaramar we definitely recommend you not to miss this celebration from your balcony or from our Blue Sea, our pool bar.

Try not to miss one of the most awaited events of the year in Fuengirola!

25th International Festival of Fuengirola

29Apr

Are you currently having a great holiday with us at Hotel Yaramar? If that is the case, you can consider yourself lucky as one of the most important and awaited events in Fuengirola starts tomorrow.

The event we are talking about is the International Festival of Fuengirola, one of the most popular events in Costa del Sol.

As usual the festival will be hosted at the fairground, and this year it will be on from Tuesday the 30th of April till Sunday the 5th of May.

The fairground will home a total of 33 countries from across the globe, so this is no doubt the perfect opportunity to discover their local dishes, culture and typical music and dances without leaving Costa del Sol.

The International Festival of Fuengirola is one of the most consolidated and successful events in Costa del Sol and this is why this year we will be celebrating its 25th anniversary.

Although it has been hosted for many years, there is always something new and exciting about it. This year for example Canada and Estonia will participate in it for the first time and Japan and Jamaica will return after being absent last year.

While the festival is on, from 1:00 P.M to 4:00 A.M there will be lots of things going on and lots  to do at the fairground, though the most expected day is always when the traditional parade takes place. This year this stunning parade will be on Wednesday the 1st of May, which is a bank holiday in Spain as it is International Workers Day. The parade will start around 11:30 A.M in Plaza de España (town centre) and will arrive to the fairground at around 1:00 P.M.

Same as in previous editions there will be a free entry International Trade Fair that will contain some stalls where you will have the chance to all kind of products, including food from different countries.

Do not miss the 25th edition of the International Festival of Fuengirola! We are sure you will have a brilliant time!!
