The April Fair is one of the most internationally popular festivals in Spain. It started out as a livestock fair but over the years it became more of a festive event which gained extraordinary fame worldwide due to its unique color, splendor, pageantry, equestrian displays, horse-drawn carriages and flamenco dancing at all hours. Hundreds of casetas (colorfully decorated tents) are set up in the fairgrounds. There is music, dancing, delicious food and drink practically round the clock. And then of course there are the bullfight festejos of top matadors at the La Maestranza.
