ESTEPONA will hold its annual street party next month which will again feature a range of free activities for young and old to enjoy.

The cultural celebration is in its sixth year and will take place from March 9 to 11 with excitement already beginning to build.

It has become a highlight of the cultural, leisure and tourist calendar in the town, with performances and concerts to please all tastes.

Councillor for Culture, Blas Ruzafa, is encouraging residents and tourists to take part and enjoy “Estepona, Garden of the Costa del Sol.”

Revenues that the festivities bring in have funded the comprehensive remodelling of a number of streets in the area.

The program events features a concert band led by Pablo Carbonell called Los Toreros Muertos, and the Spanish pop group La Union.

Other musical performances include the Young Provincial Orchestra of Malaga, and the Garcia Fajer Foundation.

More than 100 prizes will be raffled at the event, including holidays, boat trips and free restaurant meals.

There will also be a historical re-enactment for the first time, based on the revolution of 1831.

Other activities include the national contest of ham cutters, an intercollegiate chess tournament, flamenco shows, and children’s parties.
