The Grand Parade for the Nerja Carnival 2013, started at 5pm on the west side of Nerja and ended more than three hours later at Plaza de España behind the town hall. The procession was full of colour, music and excitement as the floats and participants paraded around the packed streets of the town, before partying until the small hours at the Carnival Ball.
