THE first ever Moorish Moon Festival in Mijas lit up the streets as thousands descended on the pueblo.

Dozens of craft and food stalls filled the town between July 18 and 21, for the market with a difference – all illuminated with 5,000 candles.

Councillor for Culture Santiago Martin said: “We’re very pleased with the event. Never in my life do I remember so many people in the pueblo. All the bars and shops were packed.”

He added that an estimated 20,000 people visited the pueblo over the three days.
