Los Verdiales are traditional forms of song and dance from rural areas of Malaga province. On December 28th every year (April Fool's Day in Spain), there's a competition at Venta San Cayetano, at Puerta de la Torre, on the outskirts of of the city, to decide which village troupe sing and dance the best. It is a great excuse for a party and it goes on all night long. Thousands of people turn up. There's good music, good food and the wine flows freely. It's like a proper, old-fashioned village festival that takes place in town. It is worth going for the food alone!
