Garden Fair & Orange Festival

Posted on

The Valle de Lecrín had a busy weekend with both a garden fair held in the ground of Alquería de Los Lentos in Nigüelas and the Festival del Naranjo in Melegís.

Firstly, the beautiful hotel-restaurant, Los Lentos farmhouse in Nigüelas held one of its garden fairs that lasted all day Saturday, with plenty of artisan/handicraft stalls, live music and perfect weather for sitting out in large garden with water features, enjoying a drink with friends.

As they hold these garden fairs quite regularly, it is guaranteed a good turn out.

Secondly, and running from Thursday until today, Melegís held its Orange Festivalwhich was also packed. Mind you, finding parking was a bit of a challenge, unless you didn’t mind a spot of walking from where you parked to the fair area – most didn’t because one of the biggest attractions in the Valle de Lecrín is precisely the beautiful walks.

The Melegís event was much bigger, taking in two large covered areas – a large warehouse packed with stalls and a pavillion where the live music was held.
