Sparky, sorry you had to miss things but my was it cold. After going to Formentor we were too cold to watch the tree being erected and climbed.

Hope your feeling better Sparky.
It was very cold but fortunately we had booked a table for lunch in Casa Vila and were able to watch it from there.

Yes the weather was awful and there were far fewer people at Formentor and in the square ..... 2 of our group were new to San Antoni and I feared they would not " catch the bug " , but my fears were unfounded ..... even a cut down version of our fvaourite festival has charmed them ..... despite the wind, cold, hail, snow etc

Gómez takes the Pollensa pine crown once again » Balearics » News » Majorca Daily Bulletin

Quote:
It is one of the most anticipated of events during the Sant Antoni fiestas - the climbing of the pine (Pi de Sant Antoni) in Pollensa's Plaça Vella. While parts of Majorca struggled with snow and wind and had to put off the traditional animal blessings, there was no deterring those who set off for the Ternelles finca to collect the pine and wheel it into the town. ...

In Puerto Pollensa, meanwhile, they weren't quite so lucky with the weather. Rough seas meant that the Formentor pine had to arrive by truck rather than by boat. This pine, which goes up in the afternoon rather than evening, was scaled by Patricio Medina.

Just got back from our first experience of Sant Antoni and have to say that we had a fantastic time. Although we had to leave yesterday before the tree finally arrived we sheltered from the snow in the bars around the square chatting and had a great time the night before at the fires. Yes the weather was surreal as on Monday we sat outside in the sun having lunch and a drink and yesterday drove home in the snow!!!

What we both appreciated the most was the way that the locals welcomed us in to their celebration on both days and that we never felt that we were gate crashing their fun.

If you have not done it before we thoroughly recommend Fiesta Sant Antoni, put it in your diary now, we will be back next year!!!!

Agree with everything Teflon said, got back on Saturday and had a fantastic time again, weather was bad as you know, but we still had a great time. Everyone seemed to be intent on enjoying themselves and despite the weather the fires were great, less people around for the tree and such a shame they had to shorten the route, but still so enjoyable and great to see the locals having fun.
