SAL Virgen Romeria oxcartThe Romería del Sur in Salobreña this weekend past, went very well and the turnout of colourful floats was spectacular.

The procession wound its way down to the beach road with the ox-drawn cart bearing the Virgin leading the way.

Some 5,000 people participated in the procession and event with garlanded carts and mounted participants.

The trailers decked out as floats were impressive; some as boats, some as cortijos, made their way down to the Peñon were they were parked up for ‘inspection.’

After the Mass the Escuela de Baile Flamenco and the musical trio, Esfera provided entertainment before, later on in the evening, the Virgen was taken back to the shrine, mounted on the ox-drawn cart.

This event, despite what the erratic climate throws at us, is almost the official close of summer in Salobreña.
