Hundreds of revellers are expected to descend on the annual Sabinillas Street Party this Saturday, 17 August.

The free family event kicks off at 9pm and will see live performances by the Silver Dollar Forgers and The Rob Sas Band.

Party-goers will also get to enjoy a wide variety of dishes offered by the bars and restaurants in the area.

The event is organised by both the Foreigners Department at Manilva town hall and the local bars in the area, including O'Callaghans, Jameson Spicy Indian Tapas, McGuinness', Cathy's Clown and the Mayur Indian Restaurant.

Danielle Carroll, who runs the McGuinness' Irish pub and is helping to organise the event, told SUR in English: "It's an annual event known as the end of summer party. It's a chance for locals and tourists to have fun, have a few drinks and listen to great music. It's one of the events of the year where the bars in the square work together to create a fun-filled night.

"It's one of the busiest nights of the year for us like the Full Moon Party or San Juan. So it's going to be a fab night for all!"

Now in its seventh year the event will be held in the Plaza de los Naranjos.

The event starts at 9pm with a performance by the Silver Dollar Forgers and then at 10:30pm The Rob Sas Band will play some classic rock songs until around midnight.
