Fair of the Peoples Fair of the Peoples – Fuengirola 2017 We went to the 2017 Fair of the Peoples in Fuengirola yesterday just hours after it opened. It was already quite busy, as the photo shows, despite it being Thursday afternoon, during the Siesta time. The idea of the Fair of the Peoples is to shine a spotlight on the peoples of the various countries of the world and showcase their different cultures and cuisines. Of course, not every country was represented, but dozens were. I am Welsh – British – so I naturally looked out for our ‘bar’, but there was nothing for Wales, Scotland or England or even the UK. Ireland did have a large representation though. I was later told that the Fuengirola council wanted 10,000 Euros for a UK bar, and no-one was prepared to pay it.
