Hi does any one know the final date for the fire works in port alcudia we fly 30 th June fri have we missed it ?
I read in a review a while back it was 29th June last year, we are going to Alcudia 19th June 1st time there for 2 weeks so hopefully we will see it. Somebody may have more up to date info on dates, from what I heard it was brilliant.
it's always on the 29th every year. the 29th is the date of that festival. a bit like asking "when's christmas day this year".
Chunkylover53 Is there another event? We were there one year and there was a parade with people dressed as demons lots of fire and smoke ,it was around the end of May
yes, there are several festivals throughout the year. sorry, i don't know the half of them.
i happened across one last year which was similar to the Indian Holi festival http://tinyurl.com/y7bfbks3 with people throwing paint at each other . Although there was 100's and 100's of people at it, there didn't seem to be any information about it.
there's running with fire which is more often in palma, but i once saw it in alcudia (people running around with fireworks in the hands - the sort of thing that would never happen in the uk for fear of the H&s brigade).
i just know that the sant pere one in alcudia is always one week long with various events and ends with the fireworks on the 29th. i've been in alcudia for the past 10 years at this time as no children, it's a cheap and easy time for me to go on hols :)
That runing with fire sounds like the one we saw,lots of bangers and fire,people come running out of the side streets,very scarey for the younger ones
