Colourful, musical, full of fun and costumes made for kings.

The Crevillent Moors and Christians Fiesta is something worth a visit. It must be one of the biggest and the best in Spain.
It is watched by thousands of spectators from all over Spain and the variety of entertainment is unrivaled. Some of the displays have taken a year to design and build.
A lot of effort and thought has gone into this years fiesta.

We went on Saturday evening to see one of the six parades on show which lasted three and a half hours with bands and artists giving us entertainment which was professional and the costumes and designs were exceptional.
We were with ten other friends some of which had never seen a Moors and Christians parade before and they were amazed at the amount of work which went into putting on a display like this. Some of our friends were from the UK on holiday and said tonight made their holiday much better. For those of us who had seen it before were taken back by the sheer size of the event. Considering this was only one of six parades to be held.
There was acrobats, gymnasts, stuntmen, horses and some of the biggest bulls I have ever seen. I am not forgetting all the residents of Crevillent who put on an amazing fiesta which will culminate in a very colourful fireworks display on the last night of the fiesta.
