Default Virgen del Carmen 2016 (I know...)

Firstly, hello everyone - happy new year! Unbelievably I have managed to convince my family to come back to PP for the third year running and this time there are more of us!! Baby brother and his partner are coming along too

Secondly, I know I've gone mad and I may be expelled from the forum for starting this topic this early, but do we reckon best guess is that the fireworks will probs be Saturday 16th? I am dying to be there for it and am trying to work out if it's worth getting an extra night (otherwise we'd be flying back on the 16th).

You can all tell me to shut up now

The fireworks are always on Sunday night so that would be the 17th but there is no firm date yet, as you said it's far too early .

Yes it should be the Sunday nearest to 16th & as it's so close this year, that's quite likely. We did have one year when even the tourist office got it wrong but when 16th falls mid-week the date is rather flexible!

Any news re dates, whether there will be a Wembley challenging Hustlers gig on the beach on Saturday night and whether we will have devil runners and fireworks on the Sunday

I have promised our friends all if the above and more so fingers crossed

Dare i say it but we still don't know when we will have beds and brollies on the beach so it's anyone's guess as to what if anything is planned for the biggest fiesta in PP .

I am very surprised to have received a reply on a Sunday, there are no details but at least it seems like the fiesta will take place, they usually give details about a week before . Here is the reply :-

Quote:
Encara falta un mes per les festes del Carme i el programa no estÓ tancat. Es publicitara a web i facebook. Abans hi ha les festes de Sant Pere que ja estan anunciades.
ENGLISH
Even a month before the celebrations of the Carmen and the program is closed. One website and facebook advertising. Before there is the festival of Sant Pere already announced.

At last the itinerary has been posted on FB, fireworks definitely on the 17th. It's in Catalan but gives a good idea of times and locations :-
