ARMED FORCES DAY IN MALAGA
The main events for Armed Forces Day, the Día de las Fuerzas Armadas, will be held in Málaga this year.
It takes place in the capital of the Costa del Sol on May 28 and 29.
The King and Queen of Spain, Don Juan Carlos and Doña Sofía, will be there to preside a ceremony in honour of the Spanish flag and of the troops who have died while serving their country.
One of the highlights will be an exhibition involving all three branches of the military: the Army, the Navy and the Air Force.
The celebration id very special for all members of the armed forces, who have been working throughout the year for the sacrifice of their country and who will have the chance to demonstrate their high standard of preparation.
The event is always held on the weekend of the Sunday closest to the Day of St Ferdinand, May 30th – King Ferdinand III during his lifetime.
It’s a day, which allows the public to show their support for the armed forces, for the respect and admiration they feel for Spain’s most appreciated institution.
