Residents and visitors in Fuengirola are preparing for the festival in honour of the patron of the town, San Cayetano, which will be held in the neighbourhood that bears his name on Sunday 7 August. The celebrations will begin the previous day with a service held at the Parroquia del Rosario (7.30pm), the shrine of the town’s other patron, the Virgen del Rosario.

A large stage will be erected in Calle Navarra especially for the occasion, and the festivities will begin at 10pm and will include musical performances by Dúo Cenachero and Sueño Marismeño, along with free soft drinks and food.

The event was announced by the councillor for Fiestas, Isabel Moreno, and councillor Javier Hidalgo, who said, “I know that the residents are very eager to celebrate this event, because we have not been able to do it since 2019 because of the pandemic. We invite everyone to spend a pleasant time with drink, food and musical performances to enjoy a day of coexistence in honour of our patron.

The town hall has advised local residents to be aware that Calle Narvarra will be closed to traffic that day in order to host the event.
