El Pajaro

El Pajaro

Orihuela was in Fiestas at the begining of July, no children meant that I could go out rather a lot. Met up at 10:30am with the usual AFOTO crew for Dia del Pajaro. I was rather expecting to see the real thing - oh foolish me - but this appeared on a stick with ribbons rather like a maypole and was paraded through the town, by the mayoress - Monica Lorente - and local dignitaries, and then back to the Town Hall. They were accompanied by many of the Comparsas of the Moors and Christians, who were all in fine festive spirits.
