Benalmádena is preparing, for the sixth consecutive year, the International Festival of Christmas Traditions. A multitude of nationalities will come together to share how they celebrate Christmas in their respective countries. The initiative, organised by the Foreign Residents Department of Benalmádena and the local government, aims to promote the integration of the various nationalities that reside in Benalmádena and those who attend the event, which will include customs, gastronomy and folklore.
The Festival will take place in the Plaza de la Mezquita next Saturday, 13 December, from 11am to 8pm with countless entertainment and cultural activities, exhibitions of traditional products and live music.
Some of the participating countries include Spain, France, Finland, Norway, Russia, the Philippines, Argentina, Uruguay, the USA, China, England, Wales, Ireland, Scotland and Mexico. 35% of the residents of Benalmádena are from outside Spain, coming from 125 different countries. Last year the event saw 2,000 people in attendance.
