Feria Barlovento: The Costume Contest Winners and PHOTOS!

This post is also available in: Spanish

The first event of the New Year 2011, the Feria Barlovento, hosted by Casa de Campo Living and the Marina Casa de Campo was a great success with many of the more than 500 guests really getting into the spirit of the ‘Venetian Festival’ with elaborate masks and feather boas and some in full Venetian finery! What a spectacle!

The Feria Barlovento; A Venetian Festival in the Marina Casa de Campo, took place on Saturday the 8th of January on the Calle Barlovento, to read more and see more photos, click here.
