One of the things that seem to be true of the people of Sevilla is that they begin to celebrate their Feira de Abril even BEFORE they arrive at the fair grounds. The first three photos show carriages being driven through the streets of the town on their way to the fair, not AT THE FAIR, but on the way, in the main parts of the town....
The other two photos show some of the horses and carriages that paraded around the fair grounds for several hours while we were there. There were dozens, each decked out in their best bridles and many with flowers added. They were the perfect way to show off the traditional dress of the men, women and children taking part in the Feira de Abril.
This is one celebration that I would NOT want to miss.
