Booths at the Cordoba´s Fair
This year, the Arenal Campus has more than 98 booths, which, as we have said before, are all open access. One of the characteristics of the Cordoba´s Fair is that access to all the booths is totally free, with very few exceptions. The decoration of these houses is very traditional, with decorations that resemble the typical houses of neighbors of the city. The main ornaments are pots, fences and the typical color, without missing the traditional lanterns.
Another aspect to highlight of the fair booths is that many of them have air conditioning, so the heat of these dates is much more bearable. As every year, the contest of booths is celebrated and the best decorated will receive a prize.
The horse ride is another attraction of the Cordoba Fair. There are many riders and coachmen that can be seen in the Arenal. They offer a very colorful image, along with the number of visitors that come to the fair with the typical costumes.
The attractions of the Fair are located at Street of Hell, inside the Arenal Campus. At the entrance of the enclosure is the Ferris Wheel, followed by other attractions for young people, the tombolas and fast food establishments. In the streets of the Peineta and the Volante are the attractions for the little ones. The Wednesday is the day of the chill and the price of the attractions is reduced by 50%.
