Each year I desperately try and get information about the August fiestas well in advance so that I can spread the word via my blogs and expat magazines. This year I was delighted to spot the announcement that there would be a press conference in the Jardín del Rey Don Pedro on Tuesday morning. Would I be able to get the information that I needed a month in advance?
The first surprise was that they started the press conference more or less on time: almost unheard of in Jumilla! The second surprise was that I could understand most of what was being said in Spanish. That was the good news, but the bad news was that they stood right in front of the fountain so the noise from that drowned out most of their words!

Antonio then told us that there will be even more bars and restaurants participating in the Ruta del Tapa during the Feria - 26 compared to last year's 14 - and the price will be the same at only 2€ for a glass of wine and tapa. This offer will be available every day between 12.00 and 15.00 from 9 to 18 August.
