Sanlúcar’s annual Feria de la Manzanilla got underway last night with the acting mayor, Víctor Mora switching on the lights. The feria, which lasts till next Sunday, has 67 casetas and is at the Calzada de la Duquesa. There will be horse parades on Friday and Saturday, dancing, fairground attractions, gastronomy and of course Manzanilla will be flowing. The main change this year is the relocation of the grand entrance arch at the paseo marítimo end, so that the feria can look out to sea.
Meanwhile, work is being carried out to reinforce with concrete parts of the paseo marítimo which have been eroded, and more sand has been put on the beach in preparation for the horse racing.
