The resort of Benidorm on Spain's Costa Blanca has become synonymous with Brits abroad having fun in the sun, so much so that a they have their own special day. British Fancy Dress Day is held every year on the day after the Benidorm fiestas. The tradition started more than 20 years ago when Manolo from Sinatras Club offered a free drink to anyone who dressed up. Nowadays around 30,000 people, mostly British ex-pats living in Spain and tourists visiting the Costa Blanca resorts, parade through the streets in costumes.
