Sevilla at Spring Feria Time
One of Spain's favourite events. The magic of Seville and a week long party in the spring sunshine.
From May 3 to May 8,
Seville is an extraordinarily beautiful and interesting city.
The Spring Fair is one of the most international and popular of Seville’s fiestas. It was created in 1847 as a cattle fair, and over time the festive atmosphere that had grown up around the occasion took over the business aspect, and it became a permanent fixture in Seville’s social calendar. For a week more than a thousand “casetas” or tents installed in the fairground area become the second home of the city’s inhabitants, a place where people come together to have fun and share experiences until the early hours of the morning.

May Crosses Festival
Battle of the Flowers
At the beginning of May most of Spain, every town and village has another party, this time to celebrate the arrival of spring flowers. They give it a name and have a festival 'May Crosses'
Street parades, of course, bands, of course and plenty of cerveza. Whole communities decorate their houses with flowers and carry large crosses decorated with flowers. A street parade called "the Battle of the Flowers" in which floats decorated with flowers are driven though the cities and villages  to welcome the coming of spring.  The best part of any of these paraded is watching the Spanish  especially the guys and lasses in the bands which only have a loose association with music ( maybe it's the drink!).
