(TRAVPR.COM)UNITED KINGDOM - May 8th, 2012 - Leading car rental company ArgusCarHire.com is encouraging Spanish holidaymakers to embrace the Marbella Feria festivities with great value car rental in Malaga.
Each year in early June, Marbella celebrates its patron Saint Bernabe (Saint Bernard) through a weeklong fair. The Marbella fair incorporates all the usual traditional elements of Andalusian culture including food, drink and dancing and is one of the highlights of the region’s cultural calendar. Cheap car hire in Malaga is one of the easiest ways to explore the main events of the festival.
The date of the fair depends on San Bernabé day which always falls on June 11th. This is usually a local holiday. The festivities then get underway during the first or second week of June, depending on when the 11th falls and how the Town Hall plans to mark festivities.
In the run-up to the fair, a contest takes place to choose the festival’s King and Queen. The competition usually takes place the week before the fair begins at one of the town’s many hotels which are open to the public.
Usually the fair receives an official inauguration on the Sunday. On Monday night, everyone goes to the beach close to the El Fuerte Hotel to watch fireworks.
The last day of the Feria is the most important, when a procession takes place in the morning to commemorate the Reconquista or Reconquest. This was originally the royal Spanish couple Ferdinand and Isabella, who expelled the Moors and regained control of the kingdom. A second procession in honour of San Bernabé takes place in the afternoon.
To celebrate the colour and excitement of the festival, ArgusCarHire.com is offering Malaga car rental from just £9 per day this June.
