Columbus day at estadio Español

On every October 12th or the closer weekend there is a great fiesta at the Estadio Español at Recreo where all the different colectividades (historical regions) from Spain show their folk traditions such as dance, music and foods.
Asturians and galicians were the noisier bunch who contributed with their lively bagpipe music and dancing. Of course, there are several flamenco dancing groups who represented the andalusian traditions too, but the already mentioned astur-galician bunch represented by Remembranzas de Galicia and the banda de gaitas y bailes asturianos were the ones who got the most kudos from the public.
