Definitely worth a visit. You can find a lot of Handcraft. We felt very safe! Police is present! A band was playing on stage and people are dancing on the street. Very pleased atmosphere.

We went to the feria at 12:30pm at the end of May and were very disapointed. There was almost no one appart from a few vendors. It is maybe better later in the day ? Or just in summer ?
