PREPARATIONS are underway in Cartama for the annual Virgen de los Remedios festivities, which will run from April 22 to 26.
Activities for people of all ages are planned in the village centre and at the fairground by the sports centre.
Daytime festivities will be held on Calle Juan Carlos I and by the Parque Santo Cristo with children’s activities playing a big part.
Sports competitions, concerts and dance events are also planned along with a traditional procession, during which a statue of the village’s patron saint will be carried through the streets on April 23 from 8pm onwards.
“We want to encourage locals and visitors to come to our fair and enjoy the wide range of activities we’re organising,” said Mayor Jorge Gallardo.
El Trenecito (the little train) service will be running between Cartama and Estacion de Cartama during the weekend to facilitate visits.
An exhibition of paintings by Villy will also be open at Calle Juan Carlos I, 75 during the fair.
