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.

La Noche En Vela - July 2012

On Wednesday Poniente Golf Discount and Alcor Properties were asked to participate in an event called La Noche En Vela (a sleepless night) last night. Local businesses in Almerimar were asked to open from 10pm in the evening thoughout the town. In addition people were asked to dress in white and use candles for lighting where they could.

Jacqui took the lead for PGD and I helped her out. Sharon took the lead for Alcor Properties with help from Alan who made and served some sangria.

Read More for a bit more detail.

The event in Almerimar tomorrow night is called La Noche en Vela. According to Google this can perhaps be translated in several ways including the sleepless night or up all night.

The junta local of Almerimar is asking businesses to open between 10pm and 1am on Friday 27 July 2012. Including businesses that would not normally open at this time. They are asking businesses to use candlelight where they can and offer some fun, entertainment or refreshments to customers. In addition they would like people in the businesses to dress in white.

I guess that if it is a success tomorrow night it will be something that will be considered again for next summer.

Following on from the extra events for the Virgen del Carmen and the gazpacho event last Sunday the next event being organised by the junta local for Almerimar is coming up soon. It is a late night event for businesses in Almerimar this coming Friday (27 July 2012) from 10pm to 1am.

Representatives of the junta local are going around town asking businesses to get involved in making this event a success and attracting people into Almerimar for the night.

There is more to it than the businesses just opening up for the night but I won´t say too much for the moment.

Cultura Summer 2012

When I was chatting to Marion yesterday after Friday golf she had a paper copy of a flyer for some events this summer including the concerts at the castle etc.

You can see a pdf version of the document here on the town hall website (in Spanish of course). You can see the relevant page here on the town hall website.
