Default Feste de la Verge delCarmen 2014

Due to various circumstances we might need to book our holidays well in advance for next year.

So with that in mind and the fact that I would love to be around when the festival is on are there any likely dates in July that I should aim for ?

Is there a set pattern for then the likely dates are ?

Thanks

As you will probably be aware, the powers that be here in PP are never very quick to release dates and info about the summer fiestas but I think if you book for the middle two weeks of July you will catch some if not all of it .

I've always been told that they aim to hold the last day i.e. the Sunday with the fireworks on the nearest date to 16th July (which is the actual fiesta date) so it should end on Sun 17th July 2014 - BUT this is not always the case & in the past I was given the wrong dates by the Tourist Office.

So we'll have to see.

17th July is a Thursday Sparky and while it would by lovely to have them on my birthday it would either be 13th or 20th July

Oops sorry! Not sure what calendar I was looking at it! Anyway, it should end on the nearest Sunday to Weds 16th July. As this is mid-week it it is likely to be either 13th or 20th July 2014 & we often don't know until just beforehand.

Cath, it was Pollensa who gave those dates but you are correct, July 17th is a Thursday .
As i said, it is usually in the middle of the month but we cannot give any firm dates until they are officially released .

I'm guessing still no news on the dates for the Feste de la Verge del Carmen? We'd love it if we were there for the fireworks. We're there on Sun 13th Jul but it occurs to me that it's the World Cup final that night so maybe they're more likely to make it the following weekend Or do you think that won't be a factor?

I'm hoping for 20th - by chance I'll be there then for a few days (feeling hopeful - couldn't find a suitable emoticon )
