Feria de Sevilla is being celebrated this week in Spain. The fair dates back to 1847 and is usually held 2 weeks after Semana Santa or Easter. While I was living in Sevilla years ago, I witnessed the entire city shut down for a week of casetas, drinking, dancing, and processions down the streets. Everyone is dressed in their finest traditional wardrobe: women in their faralaes, peinetas and mantón de manilas, and men in trajes corto and cordobés hats. It’s a beautiful and festive sight!
