ALMERIA CITY has hosted its annual Battle of the Flowers event which saw about 20,000 of the plants on display throughout the city.

Giant model heads were also on show, as well as a total of 11 parade floats and music from the city’s Municipal Band.

The event was full of “colour”, “flavour” and “good atmosphere”, Almeria City Council said in a statement.

“The Battle of Flowers gave tradition, carnations and joy to thousands of people,” the local authority said on Twitter.


Some of those on the floats also performed as part of a 25th annual International Folklore Festival. The Festival saw them take perform music, songs and dance from their home countries of Paraguay, Senegal and Armenia, as well as from other parts of Spain.

A group of Latin dancers and musicians also performed and paraded through the city. They began at the Avenida Pablo Iglesia before going onto Obispo Orbera, the Rambla, Canonigo Molina Alonso, Artes de Arcos, Mastro Padilla, Altamira, Doctor Carracido and Avenida Federico Garcia Lorca.

Their route ended at the city’s amphitheatre. The event came as part of the city’s Feria which is taking place this week.
