Feria de Abril, Seville

Feria de Abril, Seville

The Feria de Abril in Seville is the largest feria in Spain and attracts hundreds of thousands of people to the fairgrounds across the river from the city center.  Casetas, or tents, are set up and locals spend the day and night enjoying a truly festive atmosphere.  In almost every caseta there is music with women in colorful dresses dancing sevillanas, a traditional dance which is center stage during the fair.  During the day the main attraction are the people arriving on horseback and horse drawn carriages.  Many come from the nearby Plaza de Toros after the afternoon bullfights.  There are also carnival rides, games, and plenty of food.
