Two will be the main meeting places: Plaza de España and Recinto Ferial, although the atmosphere will reach every corner of the town.

SECURITY
“These are the first festivities in the region and a significant influx of people is expected, therefore, insist on prudence (…). We will launch a complete operation with a large presence of agents”, said the first mayor. Thus, a broad security device will be established that will involve joint and coordinated work between the Local and National Police, with the aim of guaranteeing the correct development of each of the meetings that are planned.

Added to all this is the installation of two Violet Points, aimed at prevention and awareness against sexist and sexual violence, as well as care for victims. They will be located in the Fairgrounds. On the other hand, representatives of the booths will receive training in this regard and will have, each of them, a distinctive and informative signage, extending the function and work of this important resource to these spaces.

GREEN GLASS
Another of the pioneering initiatives will be ‘Vaso Verde’. Those interested will be able to rent their glass for 1 euro, to keep it during the festivities and, at the end, they will be able to return it and thus recover this economic contribution. With this task, there will be a specific ‘stand’ at the Fairgrounds, and it can also be purchased at the booths.

The measure aims to promote responsible consumption of plastic and bet on the defense and care of the Environment.

PREPARTIES
However, the acts will start this weekend. A Goya market ‘SanFernandino’ in Plaza de España, the performance of Raquel Sastre and Joseba within the cycle ‘Fridays are LAUGHTER’, the flamenco art of Paco Candela or the popular race will be ‘warming up engines’. The elderly will have a dance and lemonade on Thursday 26 at 8 pm, an important event for them under the slogan ‘It’s our TIME’.

Note that Children’s Day, with attractions at 50 percent, will take place on May 24, 25 and 30; and the Day without Noise will be on the 23rd, between 5 and 8 p.m.
