as described in the website of Sevilla Toursim Office:
“The fair opens with the night of “fried fish” on Monday April 15 at midnight when thousands of light bulbs that illuminate the main entrance and the streets of the enclosure. On this night lights go on for about 350,000 bulbs.
Eating and drinking is one of the main pleasures enjoyed by any visitor to the fair. All booths and casetas offer a wide range of dishes that allow the public to satisfy their appetite or thirst at any time of day. The beginning of the April Fair dates back to 1846, of which its birth was then decreed by Queen Elizabeth. At first, like most fairs, it started as a cattle market which lasted over three days. Though it began as a commercial event over the years, the city of Seville has become evolved to this as family members started to join these markets and to this day is now considered as an expression of song and dance to Seville, fun, joy, color; this is our spring festival during the six days of the April Fair in Sevilla."
