|Alfaz fireworks last night|
The Benidorm fiesta kicks off tonight at 6pm when the fiesta Queens officially switch on the lights in the Old Town and then head off to officially open the fairground which is located next to the bull ring (on the other side of the park behind the Town Hall / adjacent to the train station). There are activities on everyday and the fiesta will finish on Wednesday 16th Novemebr with yes, you've guessed it a grand firework display. The action will be on the Poniente beach by the port starting at aprox 9pm - though as you are all aware the Spanish aren't known for their acurate time keeping so it'll probably bit abit later. This year's reduced budget for the Benidorm fiesta is 400,000€ (I dread to think what it was last year) The Benidorm council has a debt of 150 million euro's at present so in that respect the fiesta budget is just a drop in the ocean really!
