And so it happened that this typically American celebration has been incorporated in the calendar of festivities in the province – with a style if its own that resembles rather carnival with costumes of all kinds.

Along with the mild temperatures, the many people who celebrate the event in the streets (Zombie walk) and clubs and the following bank holiday – is fun guaranteed!

    What are the shop opening times in Fuengirola during the Rosario Fair

    • Hello Anne! The shop opening times are as usual (from 10 am to 2 pm and 5:30 pm to 8:30 pm), with two exceptions: There are two mayor celebrations, one belonging to Rosario Fair which is a local holiday: Tuesday Oct 7 where generally all shops are closed. And Monday Oct 13, which is a national Bank Holiday, but the large commercial centres usually open. Kind regards!
