Women donned their flamenco gear while men were suited and booted as they rode atop their horses and carriages into the city's bullring. 

The fair is held every year exactly two weeks after Easter and is a time when Sevillanos dig out their finest clothes and dance their traditional dance, the Sevillana, as well as enjoy plenty of food and drink, served in traditional casetas, or huts. 

This year's feria runs from April 12th to April 17th.
