As you know i don't rely on long range forecasts but so far it's looking pretty good for next week .

The tree is 23 mts so i think i will give it a miss .

Wow..... you wouldn't want to fall off that from the top! Gotta love Mallorquin Health & Safety! I'm still chuckling over the fireworks in the streets in July!

Thanks for that Sparky
But ...
For us mere mortals who have not mastered the language, is there anyone who can translate this?

What are you like El G ???? .

Basically for the 16th it gives times for the bands and judges visiting the fires.

The 17th in the town, first is the church service and blessing of the animals. Then they go to Ternelles to cut down the tree, have a spot of lunch and then transport it through the town.

The 17th in the port, 9am the buses leave for Formentor from behind the church, 11.30am is the blessing of the animals at the church, the tree should arrive by boat about midday and then it's dragged around the streets arriving in the square at around 1.30pm .
El Gordo and lollipop like this.
