Festival of Virgen del Rosario in Fuengirola

It’s my last day of a one week long stay in Fuengirola, before travelling further on to Madrid for the weekend. At the same time I was here the festival of Virgen del Rosario occured. This is a week long festival when the town is filled with horses and colorful dresses with main focus in the feria area in the evenings, along with an amusement park built up only for this event.
