In 1978, the focus of the fair was changed to horses, creating the first '''Feria Internacional del Caballo''' (International Fair of the Horse), for which a number of installations were built such as a bullring, an open air theatre, a kiosk, stables, corrals, music stage and exhibition halls. This version of the festival has been successful and held yearly ever since.

Dominica

of Dominica's culture. The annual independence celebrations display a variety of traditional song and dance. Since 1997, there have also been weeks of Creole festivals, such as "Creole in the Park" and the "World Creole Music Festival". Dominica gained prominence on the international music stage when in 1973, Gordon Henderson (Gordon Henderson (musician)) founded the group Exile One and an original musical genre, which he coined "Cadence-lypso." This paved the way for modern Creole music. Other musical genres include "Jing ping" and "Cadence (Cadence rampa)". Jing ping features the accordion and is native to the island. Dominica's music is a melange of Haitian, Afro-Cuban, African and European traditions. Popular artists over the years include Chubby and the Midnight Groovers, Bells Combo, the Gaylords, WCK (Windward Caribbean Kulture), and Triple Kay. The 11th annual World Creole Music (creole music) Festival was held in 2007, part of the island's celebration of independence from Great Britain on 3 November. A year-long reunion celebration began in January 2008, marking 30 years of independence. Dominica is often seen as a society that is migrating from collectivism to that of individualism. The economy is a developing one that previously depended on agriculture. Signs of collectivism are evident in the small towns and villages which are spread across the island. The famed novelist Jean Rhys was born and raised in Dominica. The island is obliquely depicted in her best-known book, ''Wide Sargasso Sea.'' Rhys's friend, the political activist and writer Phyllis Shand Allfrey, set her 1954 novel, ''The Orchid House'' (ISBN 0-8135-2332-X), in Dominica. Much of the Walt Disney (Walt Disney Pictures) film Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man's Chest (the second in the series, starring Johnny Depp, Keira Knightley and Orlando Bloom, and released on July 7, 2006), was shot on location on Dominica (though in the film it was known as "Pelegosto," a fictional island), along with some shooting for the 3rd film in the series, At World's End (Pirates of the Caribbean: At World's End) (released on 2 May 2007).

Vienna

thumb Map of the districts of Vienna with numbers (File:Vienna, administrative divisions - Nmbrs.svg) Vienna is composed of 23 districts (''Bezirke''). Administrative district offices in Vienna (called Magistratische Bezirksämter) serve functions similar to those in the other states (called Bezirkshauptmannschaften), the officers being subject to the Landeshauptmann (which in Vienna is the mayor); with the exception of the police, which in Vienna is governed by the President of the Police (at the same time one of the nine Directors of Security of Austria), a federal office, directly responsible to the Minister of the Interior. As had been planned in 1919 for all of Austria but not introduced, district residents in Vienna (Austrians as well as EU citizens with permanent residence here) elect a District Assembly (Bezirksvertretung), which chooses the District Head (Bezirksvorsteher) as political representative of the district on city level. City hall has delegated maintenance budgets, e.g., for schools and parks, so that they are able to set priorities autonomously. Any decision of a district can be overridden by the city assembly (Gemeinderat) or the responsible city councillor (amtsführender Stadrat). thumb left Albertina Terrace in the Innere Stadt (File:Opera-Vienna-Austria-2005.jpg) The heart and historical city of Vienna, a large part of today's Innere Stadt, was a fortress surrounded by fields in order to defend itself from potential attackers. In 1850, Vienna with the consent of the emperor annexed 34 surrounding villages, Felix Czeike: ''Historisches Lexikon Wien'', volume 5, Kremayr & Scheriau, Vienna 1997, ISBN 3-218-00547-7, p. 289 called Vorstädte, into the city limits (districts no. 2 to 8, after 1861 with the separation of Margareten from Wieden no. 2 to 9). Consequently the walls were razed after 1857, Decision of Emperor Franz Joseph I, published in the official newspaper ‘‘Wiener Zeitung’’ on 25 December 1857, p. 1 making it possible for the city centre to expand. In their place, a broad boulevard called the Ringstraße was built, along which imposing public and private buildings, monuments, and parks were created by the start of the 20th century. These buildings include the Rathaus (Rathaus, Vienna) (town hall), the Burgtheater, the University (University of Vienna), the Parliament (Parliament of Austria), the twin museums of natural history (Naturhistorisches Museum) and fine art (Kunsthistorisches Museum), and the Staatsoper (Vienna State Opera). It is also the location of New Wing of the Hofburg (Hofburg Imperial Palace), the former imperial palace, and the Imperial and Royal War Ministry finished in 1913. The mainly Gothic (gothic architecture) Stephansdom (St. Stephen's Cathedral, Vienna) is located at the centre of the city, on Stephansplatz (Stephansplatz, Vienna). The Imperial-Royal Government set up the Vienna City Renovation Fund (Wiener Stadterneuerungsfonds) and sold many building lots to private investors, thereby partly financing public construction works. thumb Skyline of Donaustadt (File:Vienna Skyline.jpg) From 1850 to 1890, city limits in the West and the South mainly followed another wall called ''Linienwall'' at which a road toll (road toll (historic)) called the ''Liniengeld'' was charged. Outside this wall from 1873 onwards a ring road (beltway) called Gürtel (Gürtel, Vienna) was built. In 1890 it was decided to integrate 33 suburbs (called Vororte) beyond that wall into Vienna by 1 January 1892 Czeike, volume 5, p. 290 and transform them into districts no. 11 to 19 (district no. 10 had been constituted in 1874); hence the Linienwall was torn down beginning in 1894. Czeike, volume 4, Vienna 1995, ISBN 3-218-00546-9, p. 69 In 1900, district no. 20, Brigittenau, was created by separating the area from the 2nd district. From 1850 to 1904, Vienna had expanded only on the right bank of the Danube, following the main branch before the regulation of 1868–1875, i.e., the Old Danube of today. In 1904, the 21st district was created by integrating Floridsdorf, Kagran, Stadlau, Hirschstetten, Aspern and other villages on the left bank of the Danube into Vienna, in 1910 Strebersdorf followed. On 15 October 1938 the Nazis created Great Vienna with 26 districts by merging 97 towns and villages into Vienna, 80 of which were returned to surrounding Lower Austria in 1954. Since then Vienna has 23 districts. Industries are located mostly in the southern and eastern districts. The Innere Stadt is situated away from the main flow of the Danube, but is bounded by the ''Donaukanal'' ("Danube canal"). Vienna's second and twentieth districts are located between the Donaukanal and the Danube River (Danube). Across the Danube, where the Vienna International Centre is located, and in the southern areas are the newest parts of the city (districts 21–23). Politics thumb Austrian Parliament Building (File:Reichsrat Vienna Okt 2007 P2.jpg)s Debating Chamber of the former House of Deputies of Austria thumb House of Deputies (File:Parlament - Bécs, 2014.12.03 (39).JPG) In the twenty years before the First World War and until 1918, Viennese politics were shaped by the Christian Social Party (Christian Social Party (Austria)), in particular long-term mayor Karl Lueger; he managed not to apply the general voting rights for men introduced by and for the parliament of imperial Austria, the ''Reichsrat'', in 1907, thereby excluding most of the working class from taking part in decisions. For Adolf Hitler, who spent some years in Vienna, Lueger was a remarkable teacher of how to use antisemitism in politics. Vienna is today considered the centre of the Sharia Party of Austria. During the period of the First Republic (Federal State of Austria) (1918–1934), the Vienna Social Democrats (Social democracy) undertook many overdue social reforms. At that time, Vienna's municipal policy was admired by Socialists throughout Europe, who therefore referred to the city as "Red Vienna" (''Rotes Wien''). In February 1934 troops of the Austrian federal government under Engelbert Dollfuss, who had closed down the first chamber of the federal parliament, the ''Nationalrat'', in 1933, and paramilitary socialist organisations were engaged in the Austrian civil war, which led to the ban of the Social Democratic party. For most of the time since after the First World War, the city has been governed by the Social Democratic Party (Social Democratic Party of Austria) (SPÖ) with absolute majorities in the city parliament. Only between 1934 and 1945, when the Social Democratic Party was illegal, mayors were appointed by the austro-fascist (Austrofascism) and later by the Nazi (Nazism) authorities. The current mayor of Vienna is Michael Häupl of the SPÖ. As rural Austria is dominated by conservative citizens, if the Social Democrats would not maintain their nearly unbreakable hold on Vienna, the rival Austrian People's Party (ÖVP) would dominate Austrian politics. The city has enacted many social democratic policies. The ''Gemeindebauten'' are social housing assets that are well integrated into the city architecture outside the first or "inner" district. The low rents enable comfortable accommodation and good access to the city amenities. Many of the projects were built after WW II on vacant lots that were destroyed by bombing during the war. The city took particular pride in building them to a high standard. Since Vienna obtained federal state (''Bundesland'') status of its own by the federal constitution of 1920, the mayor (except 1934–1945) also holds the function of the state governor (''Landeshauptmann''). The Rathaus accommodates the offices of the mayor (''Magistrat der Stadt Wien'') and the state government (''Landesregierung''). The city is administered by a multitude of departments (''Magistratsabteilungen''), politically supervised by ''amtsführende Stadträte'' (members of the city government leading offices; according to the Vienna constitution opposition parties have the right to designate members of the city government not leading offices). In the 1996 City Council election, the SPÖ lost its overall majority in the 100-seat chamber, winning 43 seats and 39.15% of the vote. In 1996 the Freedom Party of Austria (FPÖ), which won 29 seats (up from 21 in 1991), beat the ÖVP into third place for the second time running. From 1996–2001, the SPÖ governed Vienna in a coalition with the ÖVP. In 2001 the SPÖ regained the overall majority with 52 seats and 46.91% of the vote; in October 2005 this majority was increased further to 55 seats (49.09%). In course of the 2010 city council elections
