Fuengirola Christmas lights switch-on

Fuengirola Christmas

Fuengirola will welcome the festive season by switching on the illuminations on Friday, November 25

The Royal Sacramental Brotherhood of the Passion of Fuengirola in Malaga, Spain, will bless the nativity scene in the Plaza Reyes Católicos at 5.45 p.m. to officially kick off the celebrations, which has been carefully planned by the town administration.

A performance by the choir of the Real Hermandad del Roco de Fuengirola will be part of the event, which will collect money for the social development program planned by the brotherhood in the El Boquetillo community.

This will be followed by the opening of the festive exhibition, The Magic of Christmas (6.30 pm), which will be hosted by the municipal museum.

At 7.30 p.m., the Plaza de Espaa will host a joyful dance performance by the Chassé dance academy as part of the ceremony. The Christmas fairies’ procession from the Plaza de España to the Plaza de la Constitución, where the market will be held, will be next to perform.

The councillor for Fiestas, Isabel Moreno, said, “Christmas will arrive during the last weekend of November and Fuengirola will be decorated even more beautiful than in previous years. The festive spirit is always breathed in our town at this time of year, and this is a very important time for our commercial sector.”

Malaga festive activities

The festive switch-on will take place on Saturday 26 November 2022, a day later than is customary. The lights will be lit for two hours a day less than usual “to raise awareness about energy saving”.

Thousands of people make their way to Málaga from all over the region of Andalucia to enjoy the 3D Video mapping, light, and sound show, that projects festive images onto the sides of buildings.

This year, Calle Larios will have a new decorative display designed exclusively for the city’s main street. The theme is ‘heavenly angels’, each 4 metres tall with 12 metre trains, effervescent in the night sky.
