AFTER last year’s first ever Sea Festival on the Costa Tropical, the Asociacion Amigos del Mar Costa Tropical is organising a follow-up festival to take place on September 19 and 20 in La Herradura.
There will be an all sea-themed parade starting from Las Gaviotasschool to the civic centre, where the exhibition hall is to be filled with sea-related pictures created by children.
Many more children’s activities are planned at the civic centre and on the beach.
There is also a treasure hunt for the adults.
Day Two will be full of more great things to take part in, including free try-dives in the sea, an underwater clean-up, a giant paella, and live interviews with marine experts during the lunch-time period.
All this will be followed by live music in the evening at the Plaza Nueva.
The square will also be home to a variety of stalls, all dedicated to the sea, with more activities in the pipeline.
Asociacion Amigos del Mar Costa Tropical is a non-profit, ocean conversationalist group, founded by Anne Zipse in 2014.
Its main goal is to promote marine awareness by various means, including educating the public with workshops, publicly promoting healthy marine interaction, conducting marine clean-ups (beach and sea) and hosting an annual sea festival, dedicated to showing love and appreciation for the marine environment.
