On Saturday nights on the beach at Malvarrosa there are spectacular Fireworks displays, no celebration in this city is the same without them.
There are bullfights the last week of July, a series of foghts each day, will you brave one and if you do, will you brave the sun of the seats in the SOL or the cooler seats in La Sombra?
The Highlight of the month is always the white night, when there are street performances all over the city and museums and galleries stay open into the night, the city is alive and there's fun on every corner.
There are many other events - too many to mention here, bot you can check online on feriadejulio.com for up-to-the-moment information.
The final Sunday of the Feria de Julio is the Battle of the Flowers, it takes place on Sunday 28th July at around 8:00pm and is a procession of flowers which ends in a battle wher those in the procession throw flowers at the audience and vice versa.
