SquareBenidorm did it again, seeing thousands turn out for the annual British Fancy Dress Day, which always takes place the day after the official Benidorm fiesta ends. Usually a sunny day, despite it always taking place in mid November, but today it was rather grey and overcast with a few specks of rain falling early on.

Poppy girlsHowever, that certainly didn’t put the revelers off from having a good time.
The variety of costumes on display was incredible... some maybe a little un-PC, with lots of thought and effort obviously going into most of them and there were also many themed groups.

Tin soildersAs in the last few years, Calle Gerona was closed to traffic, enabling revelers to roam freely without having to dodge cars. The police were out in force – more as a precaution due to the numbers in such a confined space, but kept a sensible distance away and only too happy to pose for photographs with many of Brits.

 

FLoat paradeA float parade, sponsored by the bars and hotel groups created a great carnival like atmosphere, with batacuda bands and dancers in between the floats. Overall a great day with no sign of any trouble and there will undoubtedly be a few sore head tomorrow morning! Like every year, Sinatra's in the Square will be laying on a free giant paella for everyone to enjoy.

Date of next year Fancy Dress Day is Thursday, November 12
