AUTUMN FETE: Stalls helped to draw the crowds

MALAGA – MANY of the bands that play during the Easter processions in Malaga have had to find a new place to practice since new laws to prevent noise in the city came into effect. Some of the bands complain that they have even had to have the police on site while they play or ask for permits from the town hall every time they wish to do so.
The town hall then carries out acoustic contamination controls to determine whether local residents are having to put up with excessive noise.
If this is found to be the case, they are asked to move one, and there are currently several bands waiting to find out whether they can stay or not. They complain that people are happy enough to see them at the processions, but how can they play well if they are not allowed to practice.
