Although the dates don't get posted until very soon before the event , you would be massively unlucky to miss it if you are around between those dates

We are here from 12th to 24th and are expecting the fireworks to be on 18th they better had be because some of our party are leaving on 19th and I have promoised them fireworks

The last time we were there for this fiesta was 19 years ago. It was our first visit to PP and our children were too young. We put them to bed and watched the fireworks from our balcony!

A friend of mine will be the DJ for the party on the beach and he told me last night that the Feste de le Virgen del Carmen will start on Monday 12th July, the party on the beach will be on Saturday 17th July and the fireworks on Sunday 18th July.

Thanks very much for the info. Sparky. We arrive on the 6 July for our annual visit to PP. My grand daughter will be delighted, she likes to catch sweets when the drivers or passengers in the trucks etc., throw them out of their cabs.

I have always understood that the fireworks, which are on the main day of the festival, occur on the nearest Sunday to the 16th of July. I hope I've got it right as well, we arrive on the 16th ready for the party on the beach the next day

Hi i had a chat with Chris tonight and he is so frustrated, there are posters up for the whole summer programme in Pollensa old town. ....he had a phone call at 8pm tonight from the "organizer" of the port fiestas (which are less than a couple of weeks away) to ask him how to spell his DJ name on the posters .
Chris told me there will be a live band, he will do his set and there is also another DJ, that's all i can tell you for now........watch this space...but don't hold your breath.....the programme may be available before the 2011 fiesta .
