Marbella International Folklore Festival V 2015
The fifth Europealia International Folklore Festival opened on Friday and continued through Saturday and Sunday. Groups from Argentina, Bolivia, Chile, Columbia, Germany, Ireland, Scotland, Venezuela and several other countries provided great examples of traditional national music and dance.
There were stalls selling jewellery, clothing and other products, as well as refreshments and a wonderful paella. There was an excellent turnout and everyone enjoyed the entertainment and Marbella’s perfect weather.
The participants also took part in a parade along the Paseo Maritimo. All the groups were in national dress and the costumes, as you would imagine, were beautiful in colour and design. The dancing ranged from emotional and passionate to comical and some members of the audience also arrived in national dress.
A good time was had by all!
