Puerto de la Cruz is committed to celebrating Christmas with 'responsible joy'

The City Council presents an open and flexible program, which will adapt to current restrictions, in which the Christmas fair and Parade of Kings are included

The City Council of Puerto de la Cruz has presented a program of Christmas and Three Kings events that, despite the restrictions imposed by the coronavirus pandemic, intends to celebrate these holidays with “responsible joy”, according to the mayor, Marco González Mesa (PSOE). It is an open and flexible program that will adapt the events to the current situation at all times, so locals and visitors are encouraged to consult the updated information on the municipal website on a day-to-day basis.

With the message ‘Regala alegría’ (Give Joy), the tourist city is committed to maintaining the Feria de Navidad (Christmas Fair), which has generated income of 54,000 euros from the auction of stalls and attractions; the Three Kings parade and the route of the nativity scenes, which this year will be in the windows of local businesses. An effort has been made to extend the Christmas lighting also to all the neighborhoods and music is incorporated, which will fill the streets of Puerto with Christmas carols. To this must be added more than 10,000 poinsettias that will adorn the municipality.

Switching on the Christmas lighting and music will take place tomorrow, Saturday, 28 November

Puerto de la Cruz lights up Christmas! This Saturday, November 28 from 6:00 p.m., follow LIVE through the social networks of the City Council and Channel 10 TV.

Switching on the Christmas lighting and the start-up of the piped music will take place tomorrow, Saturday, 28 November, with the aim of generating a more optimistic and conducive environment in the city. Despite the complicated situation, "we are not going to stop celebrating Christmas, always taking the necessary measures for a safe enjoyment," stressed the mayor, who valued the role of the Asociación Ya Vienen Los Reyes, with a novel parade, and the Asociación de Belenistas San Francisco de Asís, which this year will exhibit their nativity scenes in shop windows or in places that are not currently in use.

These events will be joined by ‘Ando Tapeando Gourmet’ (Gourmet Tapas Route), between 5 and 20 December; the first virtual catwalk ‘Puerto de la Cruz Is Fashion’, or the Insular Craft Fair, scheduled for December 18, 19 and 20 in the Plaza de los Reyes Católicos.

It's also reported that the 'Naviteca' will be organized - a childcare service so that mothers and fathers can calmly enjoy their shopping in the small and medium-sized shops of the city - and a new gift packaging service is being created, which will be located in the Plaza del Charco to serve customers who make their purchases in Puerto de la Cruz.
