Since the beginning of the April Fair delimiting spaces were being, formed by a light covered with candles or fabric awnings, initially were used as shaded area in which traffickers may close refuge for commercial operations at the ones that looked interested. These “boxes” canvas were increasing as the Trade Fair pens that would diminish to the present day with configuring Fair Booth.
The origin of the booths as such dates back to 1849 when the city of Seville install something like a tent, order to monitor the fairgrounds. Curiously,and this “box”, despite their purposes, became famous for their good festive mood.
In 1850 casetillas installed the first to sell nougats, donuts, toys etc.
The stand at the Feria de Abril has two quite distinct and separate spaces:
– the front or nobleman, that is what we see from the street and is where coexistence is between the members of the house, where dancing, singing and generally place the tables to enjoy fine wine or fine Manzanilla, although lately -very despite purists- is catching on “rebujito”, refreshing drink that is drunk in astronomical quantities and born of the marriage of Manzanilla Sanlúcar, Seven Up or Sprite and lots of ice…
– the backroom -inside the house- in which are located the kitchen, the bar and toilet services.
