  • "[as it] celebrates the founding of the city. The city’s May Fiestas programme is overflowing with a month long agenda of events that includes dancing, processions, street parties, parades, art exhibitions, floral displays, sporting competitions and much melodic music from traditional Canarian bands to rock and pop.
