Residents and visitors in Torremolinos will enjoy a New Year's Eve extravaganza in the Plaza La Nogalera on Sunday 31 December.

This will be the third consecutive year the party will be held in the centre of the town and a huge marquee has been erected in the square to accommodate the hundreds of revellers expected to attend the event.

Organised by the town hall, the party will begin at 11pm, when party-goers can enjoy festive music, and refreshments from the bar, before the main event which begins at midnight.

Entrance to the party is free and attendees will receive a party pack on arrival. Grapes will also be supplied to be consumed during the twelve strokes of midnight, reputedly to bring luck and prosperity throughout the coming year.

The party will get into full swing after the New Year has been seen in, when revellers will enjoy live music provided by two popular Spanish rock bands.

Motril-based band Kassia will get the show started with their energetic style of progressive rock music. The band, which has been together for seven years, performs popular hits of bands such as Iron Maiden, ACDC, Metallica and U2.

The party will continue with the pop medleys of Malaga band, The Money Makers, one of the most popular cover bands in the area.

The band plays a repertoire of hits from the 1950s to present day; each medley ranging from 10 to 12 songs from each decade, so they will offer something for all musical tastes.

The event is expected to be well attended, so early arrival is advised. All of the bars and restaurants in the square will also be open and in the party spirit.
