THE Department of Fiestas and Celebrations of Mojácar Town Hall has begun to finalise its preparations for the upcoming Christmas season.
The first works on the agenda are to renovate and replace the existing Christmas lighting for the streets and squares of Mojácar and the beach area.
Municipal technicians are also developing more Christmas themed lights which will be installed along new roads and on the recently installed roundabouts.
At the same time the Department of Works is adapting to new technologies to achieve energy savings. The old bulbs have been replaced by bright LED cabling, and more than 20 kilometres of this material will be used to provide light and colour to the festive events.
Mojácar has 12 roundabouts, each of which will have its own unique decoration, including Marina de la Torre by the Palace Hotel Fergus Style Mojácar.
Street lamps will illuminate the promenade in the beach area and more than a third of the 375 street lamps that illuminate the town will be decorated this year.
As far as Mojácar Pueblo is concerned, the Christmas lighting and motifs will be distributed all around streets of the historic village centre, adding to the magical ambience and charm of the village.
In recent years, the town council has increased its efforts to celebrate these important dates by investing in equipment, infrastructure and facilities in order to upgrade and expand.
Every year Mojácar hopes to improve on the previous year, by developing the programme of activities and encompassing the diverse cultures and customs that make up its modern international community.
The Mojácar Christmas lights will be switched on, as usual, on Sunday, December 6, coinciding with the national holiday celebrating the founding of the Spanish Constitution.
