Malaga already preparing for Christmas as lights and party planning begin

[caption id="attachment_119162" align="alignright" width="300"] Last year's lights on Calle Larios[/caption] FOR Malaga you could say it's the most wonderful time of the year - and it's fast approaching! Details are sketchy but authorities have revealed they are planning the city's Christmas celebrations, which draw tens of thousands of visitors each year. As is tradition, the celebrations will begin on the last Friday of November, this year that's the 30th. There will, of course, be a fiesta on Calle Larios, but the exact details have yet to be released. [caption id="attachment_106493" align="alignright" width="300"] Malaga Christmas lights 2016[/caption] But there are also talks of holding performances and events in other parts of the city, not just in the Plaza de la Constitucion. The much-anticipated lights, which have taken up a fame of their own across Spain, will naturally be making a return. The Cordoba-based company responsible, Illuminaciones Ximenez, will once again take on the job of lighting up Malaga. This year's design is being kept firmly under wraps. There are 12 weeks until Christmas.
