Living in Spain and bringing up a Spanglish family during the current 'crisis' and trying various ways to make some 'dinero'. Enjoying life in the sun, crafting and blogging as much as possible.

Fiesta Castillejar - May 4th, 5th and 6th

Bang Bang must mean the fiesta has begun in Los Evangelistas neighbourhood of Castillejar. There are some games for the children at about 5pm so we will be making our way there later (weather permitting as big black clouds are rolling up too!).

Main events take place tonight and then over the weekend there is a procession up to the cross (right next to Cueva Pedro) where they bring flowers and decorate the cross (which is also lit up over night over the weekend).
