Posts Tagged ‘tapa festival’

Well we got there early, so there was plenty of walking around room, that did change fairly quickly though.. what started out slow built nicely into a very enjoyable afternoon on the Paseo de Flores drinking beer and trying the many different tapas.

From sausages to paella, you could have had it all.  Excellent tapas, great weather, and excellent company, what else do you need.  Now just remember, today is day of the child over at the fair grounds, as per normal, the bulk of the action will take place in the evening.

Tomorrow is the Fiesta de San Juan, so don’t forget, grab your bathing suit and get down to the beach.. Tomorrow it all starts around 11pm.  If you are here, try not to miss this day as it is the most fun fiesta we have have.

Even Radio Salobrena was here transmitting live from the festival.

Sunday June 21st

This day is set aside for the Potato Tortilla aficionados. A contest is being held to determine just who makes the best darn Tortilla in Town. The competition is being put on the by the Association of the Casco Antiqua de Salobreña. This is an association of neighbors.

The competition is simple.. Make a tortilla, have it there with it’s recipe by 1pm, judging starts at 1:30pm. This must be a homemade tortilla from scratch, no cook books please.

A jury will decide the winner, who will in turn win a weekend hotel stay at a 4star hotel for 2.

The jury will be made up from restaurant personnel and the head of the local Culinary school.   As well as all this great food to try and cold beers to be downed, three musical groups will be performing for your enjoyment.

Generally speaking this starts about 130pm and finishes around 4, so don’t leave it to late to enjoy the tortilla contest. Good news for the parents, there will also be a bouncy castle for the little ones.

One of the many tapas sure to be available, delicious Paella
