Feria de Abril in Barcelona

The Feria de Abril in Barcelona is a week-long celebration of Andalusian culture, co-inciding with a similar event, happening further south in Sevilla. There are 51 casetas or 'little houses' in which flamenco dancing, drinking and eating take place - all representing different barrios, families or companies. Also there is a massive fun-fair, with all kind of sphincter-clenching rides, with eyeball-searing neon and pounding 'cheesy techno' soundtracks. All taking place this year in the grounds of Barcelonas' Forum. I visited last night with some friends and shot a roll of b&w film along with some stuff on the digital which is available to check out at:

Big Wheel

Comments:
The Feria de Abril, continues for another week at The Forum - through until Sunday, 1st May. I'd say the best time to go is round about sunset, when all the fairground rides are starting to light up.
The Big Wheel rocks but don't waste your cash on the lousy ghost train, looks good from the outside but inside is just a bunch of mannequin's pinted with 'blood'
