Just a reminder about the free concert on the rugby pitch. Also, here is a video of Arco.
Thanks to Gabriel at the tourist office in Almerimar for sending me copies of the posters above advertising San Isidro 2017.
Gabriel has said he will provide me with other material to publish including the list of concerts at the castle and other summer events when he can get his hands on the information.
One of the Spanish guys I play golf with asked me if I could advertise his work in Almerimar as a jobbing builder. Above is a copy of his business card.
Please note that I am just advertising this rather than providing a reference. As yet, I have not used his services.
Also, please note that he does not speak much English.

I have been asked to advertise this event that is taking place this coming Saturday.
A reader has pointed out the article here on the Ideal site.
The article states that Ikea are to open a shop close to Almería. The initial estimate is that the shop will open around the end of 2019.

Here is a copy of the poster I spotted yesterday. As you can see the fireworks displays are Friday 29 June to Sunday 1 July. Starting at 11pm each night.
I believe that the location is the area over the road from where the weekly market is held in El Ejido.
I have just been in contact with the Facebook page for A Place in the Sun.
The people who manage the page cannot yet say when the new series will be aired on Channel 4. What they did say is that filming has been underway since February this year. The filming of the episode for Almerimar took place in early June.
They also said that once the new season starts they will include a synopsis of each episode on the A Place in the Sun website.
I will provide another update here once the start date for the series has been announced.
As I was driving back into Almerimar yesterday I spotted a poster for the 2017 fireworks displays in El Ejido. I think it said they are starting on the night of 29 June 2017 and will take place each night for a few nights.
The video above is lifted from youtube. It is of one of the fireworks shows last year.
I will publish more details here about the dates and times of the shows once I have the information.
