Strong winds and rains have forced the cancellation of today’s Carnival Humour Parade

The parade was due to start at 5.30pm from Marbella’s Arroyo de la Represa Park, but the Yellow weather warning issued by AEMET, the Spanish Meteorological Office, has resulted in the event being called off.

Manuel Garcia, Marbella’s Councilor of Fiestas, confirmed that the Adult Costume Contest planned for the end of the parade has also been suspended. Marbella mayor, Jose Bernal, commented “We regret having to make this decision, but the priority must be security and with this weather forecast we have been forced to do so.”

The Yellow warning will last all Saturday, with AEMET forecasting sunny weather for Sunday
