Horse Fair


Description

Jerez de la Frontera, in Cadiz province, dedicates a whole week to purebred horses. It does so through a programme of equestrian contests and competitions, exhibitions of pedigree livestock, auctions and horse shows that are famous around the world. González de Hontoria Park is transformed into a huge arena full of “casetas” (traditional stands) and open-air celebrations. These are decked out for a different theme every year and adorned with flowers and garlands, competing among themselves to be chosen as the best. During the day, the area is filled with horse riders and carriages that must be seen to be believed. The fun goes on throughout the day and carries on well into the early hours. It's week for having a good time and enjoying the typical music and dancing, such as flamenco and “sevillanas”. It's also a great chance to try the local gastronomy and treat yourself to some fine local wine. There are also bullfights, Spanish dancing competitions, fireworks, activities for the kids...
