There's a song that states, "Seville has a special color" ("Sevilla tiene un color especial"), but the reality is that Seville has everything: people, food, partying. Call it "the desire for enjoyment" that makes it unique.
The April Fair
The Feria de Abril is a wonderful time to experience what many consider a typical Andalucian tradition: sherry, Sevillanas, bulls, flamenco dress and horses. The Feria takes place on the Remedios side of the river and breathes life into the area. The Feria is not for everyone, and deciding on whether to attend during the night (party time!) or day (horse and children time!) can significantly change your opinion of the event. Daytime is for seeing horses and the traditional dress worn by Feria goers. Nighttime is for drinking and dancing "Sevillanas" until the sun comes up! It may seem that every Sevillano is born with the ability to dance Sevillanas
The Feria de Abril officially opens when the "Puerta" is illuminated (El
Alumbrao). Fried fish has become a traditional meal on this night. Wasting no time, people enter
it just after midnight, when the festivities begin. On the following Sunday,
the Feria closes at midnight with fireworks.
