Los Barrios Christmas fair to bring yuletide cheer and help local causes

LAST UPDATED: 12 Nov, 2015 @ 18:59

THE Los Barrios Christmas Fair at Hacienda Almoguera is always a festive hit, but organisers want this year’s event to be a charitable occasion.

With 45 stands, a flamenco Christmas choir, ceramic painting and pony rides for children among many other attractions, there is lots to entertain visitors on November 28 and 29.

But as Christmas is a time to remember the less fortunate, Catherine and her family hope guests make a small donation to local charities.

“We would like to ask our guests to donate non perishable food items –  rice, pasta or canned foods for the local Food Bank, Banco de Alimentos de Campo Gibraltar.

“Any profit made from the €3 car parking fee goes to Cruz Blanca to help refugees and local families in need.”

Stalls selling pottery, jewellery, children’s clothes and festive favourites such as legs of jamon, minced pies, mulled wine and Christmas trees are sure to get your yuletide off to the perfect start.

The ninth annual fair starts at 11am, with live music in the evening.
