One of my favorite festivals, in one of my favorite places in the world — Sevilla’s Feria de Abril (even though it’s in May this year) — begins at midnight tonight, when the city switches on the overhead lights and the party starts.

I’ve been lucky to attend the feria three times over the past several years, both with Spanish friends and twice with groups of CAA travelers.

I hope you enjoy these photos from my first visit to the feria, in 2009. To see more (and other photos of the area), click on “Spain” in the list of blog categories.
