Oh boy am i glad i don't live in the square but it is so good to see the local businesses getting together to provide the fireworks.
Now it's up to the locals and tourists to show their appreciation and support these events. I am getting excited already and ask all members who will be here to join in, take lots of photos and get posting your experiences of what i am sure will be a great fiesta .


P.S. Ooops sorry!!! meant to add, many thanks to Andrew -wotzupnorth xx

Sorry i forgot to say, the list is printed in the programme which i was given last night by a neighbour.
Unfortunately the programme is printed in Catalan , i wonder if they will issue them in English before the fiesta begins .

Its fantastic to see the fireworks display will go ahead this year!!!

We arrive this Saturday and so we will most certainly be going to watch them! Back in 2010 when we last visited, we watched from the Illa D'or hotel and it was magnificent.

Did a display happen last year?

Cant wait for this Sunday now!!!
