THIS year’s All Saints Fair in Albox was a great success, the council has announced, and although thousands of people attended there were no serious problems to report.
Local Mayor Rogelio Mena reported: “The result of the 2015 Albox Fair couldn’t be better. Lots of people took part in all the activities and there were no serious incidents.”
Two free concerts by La Union on October 30 and Los Rebujitos on November 1 proved particularly popular with more than 3,000 people in the audience on both nights.
A performance by competitors from Canal Sur TV station’s Se Llama Copla competition also proved popular, as did the fairground, other entertainment and cultural and sports events planned by the festivities department led by Francisco Perez Conchillo, the mayor said.
In spite of the crowds and heavy rainfall on one of the five days the fair ran for, there were no serious problems to report.
“This year we’ve done more with less and put a lot of effort into making the fair special for locals and visitors. That’s why we can proudly say this fair has been a great success,” Mena said.
However, he reported, suggestions given have been taken into account and the council will work to make next year’s fair even better.
