Sant Antoni 2017
 
Starting to think about Sant Antoni already, flights booked and now we have booked a penthouse studio on the front next to Diana, so really looking forward to getting over for this fantastic fiesta. This year it is Monday and Tuesday, so great for a week Saturday to Saturday, hopefully more flights this year so no excuses for not getting over if you haven't experienced it yet. 98 days until we fly back :):):cool::):)

Fiesta Tuesday night? so best to fly back Weds, or is Monday the party night? Lunch outside if we're lucky with the weather?

Sparky 07-10-2016 13:06

Monday is the main day for partying in the Port, on Tuesday as soon as the tree has been climbed everyone disappears, many head into the old Town as they do the tree in the evening.

ALWAYS January Snowy :confused:.

sws97sdg 08-10-2016 06:58

Yes January, and it's nice because all the Xmas decorations are still up in Palma and the port, and hopefully the weather will be bright enough to eat outside during the day. Cafe 1919, Marina cafe, el Casanet and the Chinese run one on the front have tables outside.

Eating breakfast cooked on bbqs on Formentor beach, on the morning of the tree climb is well worth the early get up. Buses provided and a lovely atmosphere. :)

sws97sdg 08-10-2016 12:21

We will try and do that this time, get a bus there

Molt de Renou 08-10-2016 14:58

This year ( 2016 ) I went by car and was surprised how easy it was to park, especially as it was a fine day.

Maybe a car sharing scheme could be organised for those who don´t have access to four wheels.

Sparky 19-12-2016 12:07

The Hustlers will be playing at Nostalgia on the 16th :D.

pansy potter 05-01-2017 10:00

Does anyone know of any restaurants for the Monday night offering special menus for the festival ? We went to el casinet last year and they had a BBQ theme but I think it's different this year , any ideas please :)

Sparky 05-01-2017 12:10

Marina Brasserie doing Arroz Brut, BBQ, fruit and wine for 13€ pp.

sws97sdg 05-01-2017 12:27

Do you know when the mounds of soil will start appearing, we are catching the bus down on the Saturday morning and I am wondering if the bus route will be changed at all? TIA

Nothing has been posted yet but the bus stops could be moved up to the by-pass as they were last year. Here :- https://c4.staticflickr.com/2/1649/2...b20d4d15_z.jpg12491952_800860350024009_4282045286531460866_o by lyn.sparkes, on Flickr

sws97sdg 05-01-2017 15:16

Thanks Sparky, quite a walk to the front, but plenty of places on the way to stop off for refreshments!! :)

Sparky 07-01-2017 12:58

Cafe 63 doing Arroz Brut & BBQ 12€ pp.

Sparky 07-01-2017 14:29

Maxim will be offering BBQ, glass of wine or a drink and dessert for 12€ pp.

Molt de Renou 07-01-2017 19:37

Are there "public" grills spread around town or are they all privately run ?

There are always lots of grills that anyone can use ;);).

Sparky 09-01-2017 14:41

Derek Holt will be performing at Liberty Kitchen from 4pm-8pm on the 17th after the tree climbing ;).

Sparky 09-01-2017 14:45

Fire and BBQ at Norai on the 16th.

Molt de Renou 09-01-2017 18:09

Apparently there will be live music and barbeque at Hostal Borras

Gommar Goffer 10-01-2017 09:51

The Hustlers are playing at Nostalgia again on the night of the fires

Sparky 10-01-2017 10:00

I know long range forecasts are not very accurate but it's looking like it will be very cold and windy with snow showers possible at fairly low levels on the 16th, may i suggest you bring plenty of warm clothing if you are planning to be here :eek:.

sws97sdg 10-01-2017 10:23

Thanks for the heads up Sparky, we are bringing hold luggage this time so packing for every eventuality, including shorts in case I fancy a swim!! Rain coats and jumpers packed just in case. Snow will be interesting though!! :eek:

Teflon 10-01-2017 10:25

Thanks for the heads up Sparky we will bring our thermals!! Not quite what we were planning on for our first visit to Sant Antoni, but hopefully we will get a little bit of sun to keep us warm as well as the fires :) :)

sws97sdg 10-01-2017 10:36

Layers is what you need, in previous years we have sat in the sun in cafe 1919 in tee shirts, but out of the sun it is cold. Hopefully we will still get some sun, that's if we can get over, they are forecasting arctic conditions here for the end of the week, hoping it doesn't get down this far and affect the airports! :(

Teflon 10-01-2017 10:40

Fingers crossed - due out of Gatwick early Saturday with freezing temperatures forecast...... :eek:

sws97sdg 10-01-2017 10:43

See you on the plane!!

Sparky 10-01-2017 12:29
