The Fiesta of the Moors and Christians -- Sunday Evening -- Part Three!



Well worth the Wait!!
The Grand Parade - All the different Moors and Christian groups accompanied by their own music bands.
The culmination of up to a years effort with costume and finery!
I will just let the photos tell the story.
The photos of the back of the costumes are to show the amazing detail in the designs!



































Thankfully the only Blunderbuss we saw or heard!
















This little chap looked so serious even when the crowd applauded loudly!
















Dear little chaps walking all the way and dressed up beautifully!






















A very Royal wave!






How little is he!










The foal from yesterday was still determined not to be left behind!




And the procession went on until darkness fell and the dancers were still smiling.




So the little village on the hillside celebrated for another year. 
I shall look at all the Moorish artefacts and architecture with even more interest from now on!
