Almeria bets on a “normal” Christmas. The council hope to recover the Three Kings parade for Christmas and other activities.

The Almeria City Council are aiming to recover Christmas in full this year with a return to “normality”. This year’s Noche en Negro has been “abandoned”, but plans are already in place for an amazing Christmas.

The council aim to recover the entire Christmas festivities programme. This will include the Three Kings parade through the main streets of the city. This will depend on how the coronavirus pandemic develops though.

If coronavirus infection data is looking favourable in the Almeria capital in January, the plans will go ahead. The current situation is encouraging and the council have started to organise Christmas. Plans are in place for the parade. Other events such as a Christmas market have been planned too.

The Christmas market took place last year and wooden stalls were spread out between the Paseo de Almeria and the Rambla. This was to give sufficient social distancing space. It is expected that similar will occur this year.

The government team in Almeria are planning for a “normal” Christmas so long as the pandemic allows. PP municipal spokesperson, María Vázquez announced that plans have been approved. 13,000 kilos of sweets will soon be bought for the 2021/2022 Christmas festivities, with a base tender budget of 67,210 euros.


The councillor commented: “If there are no changes, and with thepandemic anything can happen, we will recover all the Christmas activities.”

As reported by Diario de Almeria: “With regard to the Noche en Negro, Vázquez indicated that the budget items were used for the economic aid that the City Council has allocated to the retail sector as part of the Reactive Plan in the face of the crisis caused by the coronavirus.”
