A ban on individuals letting off firecrackers on the 17th has been announced by the ajuntament.

How long did it take them to climb the tree today? Looks like you had great weather for it and for the bonfires last night.

20 mins or so, just about right, the weather was balmy again, I helped pull the tree around which made my trip, we had an absolute blast of a time, if you have ever thought about coming over for the fiesta, I urge you to try it, you will not be disappointed, arguably the weather really helped to make it so special but whatever the weather you will have a memorable time

We have been out many times for this fiesta - always enjoyed ourselves but not always had the weather you had today.

Default and the winner is ...

Before this climb, and rather less publicised, there is another climb - this one in Puerto Pollensa. It also has its rituals, which entail heading off to Formentor and transporting the pine tree to its destination, the church square (Plaça Miquel Capllonch). Cristian Agu was the first to reach the top of the tree this year.

Have to agree, mainly because of the weather, this has been the best Sant Antoni we have ever been to. Brilliant night last night meeting friends at the Yacht Club for drinks and then onto El Casinet where we had delicious Arroz Brut and barbequed meats and mucho vino tinto. The live music and Mallorquin bagpipes added to the fun. Then upwards and onwards to Nostalgia until 4.30 am.. oh dear my head this morning

The tree climbing was over fairly quickly but, as always, there was a great atmosphere in the square. Finally to round of a great couple of days a late lunch ( or early dinner) in Centric.

Early to bed tonight
