The Sunday concerts of the San Roque festivities, jinxed

The Sunday evening of the Vilagarcía festivities seems to be jinxed. First the Mon Laferte concert was cancelled. Less than a month after San Roque, the Council managed to sign Natalia Lacunza to replace the Chilean singer, but the former contestant of Operación Triunfo 2018 just 24 hours before his appointment with the Vilagarcianos communicated to the Department of Culture the suspension of his concert in the park of A Xunqueira alleging “reasons of a personal nature”. “The limited time available, just one day, prevented finding a viable alternative to cover that space on the agenda”, they justify from Ravella.

The department headed by Sonia Outón “is very sorry for the situation and apologizes to the residents of Vilagarcia and the visitors who had planned to attend the concert” despite “having no responsibility in this unforeseen situation”. Thus, it encourages citizens to enjoy the other musical performances planned for the remaining eight days of festivities.

The morning brigade will be made up of Xardíns, Environment, Works and Lighting workersin addition to two conductors of Cespa who will drive a collection truck and a washdown truck. Garbage collection will be done manually and, like last year, selectively to recycle as much as possible.

The tasks will begin on the beaches to leave them in good condition for bathers and will move towards the TIR zone, Miguel Hernández park, O Centenario and O Cavadelo.

The outer bars, withdrawn at 4:00 p.m.

The afternoon shift will start once the Festa da Auga is over. Thus the Councilor for Works and Services, Lino Mouriño, appeals to the catering establishments so that they have the exterior bars fully collected and removed at 4:00 p.m.

The operators will begin at 4:30 p.m. to clean the streets with three trucks, three sweepers and a washing machine. Ravella will only resort to washing down for cleaning tasks after the Festa da Auga. The other days, as has been happening for weeks, the cleaning will be dry with sweepers.

The city must remain pristine for the passage of Procession of San Roque at 8:30 p.m..
