THE First Fira del Llonguet will be celebrated on Sunday (April 26) in the Es Pillari district of Palma.
The llonguet is a Palma typical bread roll, made using in traditional methods, often baked in wood ovens.
Head of the Llevant District in Palma, Antonia Fornary together with health and consumption councillor, Rosa Llobera, launched the event last Monday, which has been organised by the Neighbourhood Association of Es Pillari.
The fair will take place between 9am and 8pm and visitors will be able to enjoy a variety of products from 50 different stalls as well as 13 bread ovens. A presentation displaying the llonguet baking process will be held as well as an exhibition of sculptures created by artist Toni de la Mata.
Car enthusiasts are highly encouraged to attend the fair as there will be a classic and antique cars exhibition.
Two car parks around 200-metres from the facilities have been made available for participants.
Head of the Association Andres Medina explained that the fair has been designed to revive interest in the llonguet, a product which is not widely known amongst youths.
“The llonguet has been somewhat forgotten due to the popularity of other products such as baguettes, or frozen bread,” said Mr Medina.
Those interested in attending can access the area by car using the exit number 10 and 11 of the Llevant motorway as well as bus line 31, departing from Porta de Sant Antoni.
