If they do as normal those dates would be about right, but you never know with our council .

As for an itinerary it is way too early to say, there is more chance of snow falling in August than a timetable being released before the end of June .

Hiya. What part of the beach are the fireworks on (if any)? Also the beach party? Is this the party that plays loud music on the beach until the early hours?!! We have booked an apartment near the guardia civil and have 2 young children, so I'm now concerned this will keep them up! Thanks

The fireworks are on La Gola beach and if there is a beach disco this year then it has also been held on the same part of the beach..(in the past it has been the week before ) and would not think you would hear very much where you are staying- but as Sparky said the actual events have not yet been published

If there are fireworks this year my advice would be to do as the locals do .... Have a family siesta earlier in the day and then take the kids along to the beach to watch the fireworks .... Ours watched them on the beach from being toddlers and loved the fireworks and the party atmosphere

Last year we watched from our hotel balcony, but when the kids were young we went to the beach, they are brilliant, I do love fireworks, really good fun sitting on the cold sand with the crowd.

THE MAYOR MIGUEL ANGEL MARCH PRESÈNTA FIESTAS DEL CARMEN.

IN THE SUMMER SOLSTICE, THE
JULY BEGINS THE PERIOD OF
CELEBRATION OF OUR TOWN

It is a journey that begins in our past
and that accompanies us towards a future in which makes us
forward to participate.

This is a very good opportunity to bring the
our project, a project that wants to count as a
of the most important parts with the contributions of the
citizens, a project which aims to introduce a new
way of working, to join efforts to achieve the
objectives, share solutions for setbacks
you are presenting.

The dock is ready for your party and all we are
invited to celebrate it, especially because it represents
the expression of a people that has succeeded in making the
people who are both those that are here from
as long as the comings of diverse places the
I can hear well.

The holidays are a time to reconnect with friends, relatives,
neighborhoods ... to enjoy the many cultural events,
Leisure and sports that have been organized for both
children and young people as well as for large, to bring us to our
the landscape, the environment that we need to preserve to let you
in testimony to our children and also to those
people that we choose to spend your moments
more special offers.

So, so many years everyone and good party!

The Mayor
