Looks like there is a gourmet food event in El Ejido this coming weekend (25-27 November 2016). You can see more details via the site here that Ideal has set up for the event.

Dalias 2016

Gabriel from the tourist office has provided me with a 28 page pdf document describing the Dalias fiestas that are taking place at the moment. You can see a copy of the document here.


Almerimar pilgrimage 2016

I have been a bit busy the last few days so have only just got around to looking at stuff to do with Almerimar on Facebook. The above photo of the "pilgrimage" last Friday is from the El Ejido Es Mi Prioridad Facebook page.

Pirate week 2016

I have been very busy the last week or so and have not had much chance to post things on here. As usual there has been loads going on in Almerimar to entertain the summer visitors.

For example, last week was Pirate week. Here is a picture from the Facebook page of the Almerimar Junta Local showing a little of what happened.

UPDATED: Message from Gabriel ... They have sent me a change with reference to the simulating of the rescue. It won't be in the afternoon. It's on next Friday at 1 p.m. (13 hours).

Gabriel from the tourist office has been in touch with the following information.....

"I am writing to inform you about the open doors days organized by the Maritime Safety and Rescue Service in Almerimar. The programme is as follows:

• 10 de Agosto:
Arrival of the Lifeboat Guardamar Polimnia at the marina.
• 11 de Agosto:
From 19:00 to 21:00, open doors on board of the lifeboat.
• 12 de Agosto:
AT 1 PM there will be a drill (simulating an operation of search and rescue) in which will take part a helicopter from the Maritime and Safety Rescue Service (Helimer 202) together with staff from Protección Civil. After the drill, the HS HELIMER 202 will land on the zone reserved for them next to the tower (see map). Afterwards, after a short stay, it will return to its base in Almería.
From 19:00 a 21:00 there will be open doors on board.

1001 Gazpachos 2016

Thanks to Gabriel for sending me this poster for the 1001 Gazpachos event that is taking place tomorrow night.

Most years I go to this event. It is really well attended but generally there are not many non-Spanish attendees.

I can really recommend that people go along and give the various flavoured drinks a try. There are normally some savoury ones, some sweet ones and occasionally even an alcoholic one.

August 2016 events

Just a reminder as it is getting close to the end of the month. Here is a list of the August 2016 activities that I published earlier in July thanks to Gabriel at the tourist office.

He gave me a copy of the 2016 magazine for the Virgen del Carmen. Inside the magazine was this list of events for August 2016.
