More than a million colored lights illuminate Gonzalez Hontoria park in Jerez de la Frontera for the much anticipated annual Horse Fair. The event began almost 800 years ago with the practical function of being a venue for the buying and selling of livestock. Today, it’s a place to see the region’s best horses compete whilst sampling a glass of Jerez’ well-known sherry. Fireworks, bullfights, and an equestrian ballet add to the excitement of this equine affair.
