Summer Concerts Castle 2017

Summer Concerts Castle 2017

Thanks to Gabriel from the tourist office for providing me with a copy of the information about summer concerts at the castle in 2017 (click on the image then click again to see a bigger version). He also provided some advice about booking early.....

"Find enclosed the brochure for the concerts in Guardias Viejas Castle and other cultural activities for the summer. It is also available at the Tourist Information Office for anybody interested in having a copy.

Regarding the concerts, given the high demand of some concerts last year it might be a good idea to follow the old saying: early bird catches the worm. What I would advice your readers is to have a look at the list, decide what concerts they want to go to and then buy the tickets for them all at the same time from the Auditorio in El Ejido. There is a number of tickets reserved to be sold on spot the night of the concert and the staff from Área de Cultura do their best to find room for everybody, but please note that the castle has a limited capacity."

San Isidro 2017

San Isidro 2017

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.

Fireworks - summer 2017

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.

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.

grand opening theatre festival 2017

Gabriel from the tourist office sent this to me yesterday while I was out playing golf. There was a grand opening of the 2017 theatre festival in El Ejido last night.

Spanish petanque championships

I had to pop in to the Michaelangelo chirringuito yesterday so I was walking along the promenade on the poniente (west) side of town. While there I spotted the area that was recently used for a big Spanish boule competition. It was very impressive with loads of boule pistes.

The photo above is from the a link shared on the Almerimar Junta Local Facebook page. You can see more photos of the event via the page.
