St Patrick’s day is huge in Spain – there is a huge Irish parade in Alicante,, in Fuengirola, there is a full day Irish festival held in the fairground and some famous landmarks in Madrid even “turn green” for the day.
More locally, here in Manilva, the Manilva Foreign Residents association, have organised the St Patrick’s day celebrations which, this year, will be held in Duquesa port on March 17th (obviously!)
The day’s events kick off at 4pm. You can expect bouncy castles, live music, various stalls, face painting and of the odd pint of Guinness!!!
I expect there will be a few sore heads on the morning of the 18th..
