First week of July 18 Activities

In typical Spanish fashion the Junta Local for Almerimar has published the events for the first week of July on their Facebook page on the second of July. The poster above was lifted from the Facebook page.

Almerimar Blue Week - July 2018

I spotted this recently on the IMD El Ejido Facebook page. The list of summer events has started.....

Theatre Festival Booklet 2018

Been a bit busy the last few days so have only just got around to publishing this.

Last Friday there were a load of booklets for the 2018 El Ejido Theatre Festival available for people to pick up in the golf clubhouse. I guess that they will also be available in the tourist office.

There are a lot of events taking place starting 3 days ago (18 May) and finishing on 16 June 2018.

You can see more details here on the town hall website.

Fire near beach - 16 May 18S

Thanks to one of our readers, Gary S for this photo.

Yesterday we were playing golf late in the morning and early in the afternoon. As we were playing the 13th hole we heard the sound of fire engines coming down the road into Almerimar. I guess this must have been at around 2pm.

The next hole took us up to where you can go under the bridge to the Classic (Master 3) course. When we got to the green of the 14th we saw a lot of smoke in the distance. As we were teeing off on the 15th the smoke was dying down. So I guess that the firemen had done their job by then.

I was a bit busy last night so did not check my email until late. When I did I spotted that I had received the photo above from one of our readers. It looks like the fire was in the shrubs and plants not far from where they have built the petanque (petanca, boule) pistes. Not far from La Tita Cocina and Michelangelo.

UPDATED 11:45 - 17 May 18: You can see a video of the fire here on the El Ejido Digital page on Facebook.




Race For Women - 13 May 2018

I got this poster from Facebook. As you can see there is a ladies race taking place this coming Sunday (13 May 2018). Along the promenade close to the beach hotel.


This looks like a good gig in El Ejido. There are shows from 25 to 27 May 2018. You can book here on the uniticket site.

A bit late to advertise this. However there are some events taking place today and tomorrow. You can see details here.

The Sol Times site has details of the Il Divo concert in Almería later this year. You can see details here.

Tickets start at 50 euros each and go on sale on Tuesday 27 February 2018.

I think I know at least one person who will be trying to get tickets.
