Almerimar

The event will be taking place close to the church from 6pm until 10pm tomorrow.

The article here on the Portal Ejido site has more details (in Spanish). The article mentions the arts and sports, theatre plus laughter therapy. Sounds interesting.

Old cars in Almerimar

The article here on the Portal Ejido site has details of the exhibition of old cars that took place in Almerimar last weekend.

My guess is that some of the people in town remember some of these cars when they were first manufactured.

According to the article here on the Ideal site all these extra events in Almerimar for the summer this year have led to takings increasing by 5-10% in July and around 30% for August compared with last year.

The article also says that plans are being put in place to try to have some events to keep businesses in town thriving during the quieter times of year.

Almerimar beach rugby

According to the article here on Portal Ejido there were 18 teams taking part in the event last weekend, 12 male and 6 female. They came from different parts of the country such as of Almería, Seville, Granada, Malaga, Murcia, Madrid, Santander, Puertollano and Guadalajara.

Bike race in Almerimar - 18 August 2012

Nice to see that Sylvia has got her broadband back up and running. She posted the following comment on Facebook about the cycling race leaving Almerimar this morning....

"When walking dog this morning I went via the hotel to see if I could see the start of cycle race. There was no one about but on the way home I noticed activity at the new hotel. The race started about 9.0am & there seemed quite a few cyclists. I didn´t envy them as it was very hot & humid with no wind."

So it looks like they decided to start the race near the golf hotel rather than the AR Almerimar hotel as mentioned in the article in the paper earlier in the week. Also, 30 minutes later than anticpated.

By the way, Sylvia told me on Friday that the hotel that is open at the  moment (AR Almerimar hotel) used to be called the beach hotel years ago. I didn´t know that until now.

Just spotted on the Portal Ejido site that band called The Butterflies House will be playing  Spanish, English and French pop-rock at the castle in Guardias Viejas tonight. Starting at 10:30pm

Looks like it might be fun.

August 12 events in Almerimar

If you click on the photo above (then click on the image that appears in a separate window to enlarge it) you should be able to see details of the events for the rest of August in Almerimar.

Events Aug 2012

The good news is that there is now a calendar of events published for the things taking place in Almerimar this month. The image above is from the window of Pizza Guzzi so I am pretty sure the list will be around elsewhere in town.

The bad news is that the photo did not come out very clearly on my phone. I will have another go with a better camera later today all being well. That way people will be able to see the list of events.

 

Just seen an advert on the front of the latest copy of the Sol Times saying that the Almerimar market wll be this coming Sunday, 12 August from 6pm to 11pm. In the area close to the church.

concerts at the castle

The summer concerts at the castle in Guardias Viejas have started again. I was speaking to Marion at Tuesday golf yesterday and she said that she saw the local choir there and they were great.

They performed on last Friday night according to the article here on the Ideal site.

You can see more information about the concerts and download a pdf file with details of events  here on the town hall website.

Junior footy

Apparently this took place last weekend in Almerimar according to the article here on the Ideal site. It is a shame I didn´t know it was going on as I might have gone along to watch it.

It was another hot and misty start this morning. It is burning off a little now.

On Thursday evening I noticed a sign in MacGowan´s advertising a night on the beach. I believe that the idea is that families camp out for the night under the stars. I forgot to note down the date and details but I think it is sometime soon.

A couple of points about this:

1. Once again this is a good example of the junta local and the organisation of neighbours of Almerimar setting up events in the town.

2. Once again this is an example of not being able to go on the internet and find out about these events. If I want to know the details I will have to go down to MacGowan´s and look for the poster. Or see whether I can find a similar poster somewhere in town.

The medieval market is being advertised here on the Ideal site.

Friday, Saturday and Sunday (3-5 Aug 2012) starting at 7pm. However as Jacqui mentioned to me last night in the past it hasn´t really got going until at least around 9pm.

 

While driving around town I have noticed that there are now posters up for the Medieval Market in Almerimar this coming weekend. It will be held in the marina on this coming Friday, Saturday and Sunday evening from 7pm to 1am.

The Friday Golf Society has announced that the details of the day trip to a bodega on Saturday 29 September 2012 have now been published on their website and the entry list for the event is open.

See here on the FGS site for details of the trip to Bodega Dominio Buenavista.
