MIJAS and the Netherlands will be strengthening their ties with Dutch Friendship Day this Saturday, April 25, at the Plaza Virgen de la Peña from noon until 6pm.
Part of Mijas Foreign Residents’ Department’s thirtieth birthday celebrations, the event has been planned in collaboration with the Dutch embassy and will begin with the unveiling of a commemorative plaque on the Nations Wall by the tourist office by the local mayor and Frank Buster, acting consul of the Netherlands for Malaga.
The Dutch Choir will be performing during the event and readings and shows, including the traditional flag dance, will also be included in the day’s entertainment, while typical Dutch food and drink will be on offer on stands in the square.
“Mijas currently has a large community of Dutch expatriates and many more come on holiday to our area each year. With this gesture we want to let them know we’re very happy they are part of Mijas and thank them for their affection,” said Foreign Residents’ councillor Mario Bravo.
