My First Feria: Jerez de la Frontera

Though I already gave a quick overview of ferias in general, did I mention they’re absolutely beautiful?

The Andalusian horses, with their silky coats gleaming under the harsh midday sun.

The Jacaranda trees in bloom, in an almost unbelievable shade of purple.

The women dressed exquisitely in expensive flamenco dresses.

The men, dapper in suits upon their prized horses.

Paper lanterns, vivid colors, bright lights, soulful music, passionate dancing and copious amounts of regional food and drinks.

It was a blissful day.

No detail was left out; even the horses were dressed to the nines.

It was the Feria del Caballo, or “Horse Fair”, so horses were abound.

Pretty girls in pretty dresses.

Even little girls dressed up in their flamenco dresses.

I have a soft spot for paper lanterns.

This beautiful couple was happily dancing beside me.

The Jerez feria is BIG.

I felt transported to another time almost.

More dancing!

And the beautiful, bright lights that cast a warm glow over everything late into the night…
