Feria








Feria

is the Spring Festival.

I have heard that it is much more fun than Mardi Gras!

It is a party in the street for the whole town. John and I plan to check out the ones in Rota, Puerto, and Cadiz. Cadiz is actually famous for its crazy ferias.

They are during different weeks, so we can space it out a lil bit.

Traditionally, women wear Flamenco dresses to Feria, so they can break into dance at a moment's notice.

John and I went to a bazaar today, and I picked up a flamenco dress. They come in many, many different colors and styles- all of them weigh a TON. I wanted a more crazy colored one (I had on my eye on an orange and brown one), but this was the best one in the end. Plus, it fits, so I do not have to pay tailoring on top of the dress price.

This dress is actually comfortable. The ladies seemed to prefer that you wear a more tight one, but they don't have to wear these things all night long, walking up and down streets.
