Firework battle returns to the May Festivities in Los Realejos, reframed as an offering

May festivities return to Los Realejos

"This year it will be a draw", joked the mayor, Manuel Domínguez on Friday, announcing that this year the Los Realejos sky will once again be lit by the traditional battle between the streets of El Sol and El Medio, but converted to a "firework offering". The mayor confirmed that this event, suspended in 2020, will resume but without a procession and starting at 11:00 p.m., coinciding with the curfew to avoid crowds gathering in the streets.

Those who wish to enjoy this show, as well as the enrame (decoration) of the crosses inside the houses and chapels, which again takes centre stage but without visits inside, both in La Cruz Santa as in the rest of the municipality, and the three Eucharists scheduled on the 2nd at 09.30, 10.30 and 19.00, will be able to do so via streaming through the City Council's social networks. (Facebook (Fiestas) | Twitter | Instagram | Youtube)

The website of the festivities, with photos, geolocation, 360º view, also allows private participation by those decorating crosses, being able to upload their own images.

On the Día de la Cruz (Day of the Cross), May 3, a local holiday in the municipality, the streets of El Sol and El Medio Arriba, in the area of ​​Realejo Alto, will once again be given prominence, roads already decorated by the respective festive commissions, which will also show the best floral art in their chapels. The Eucharist in honor of the Holy Cross from the parent parish of the Apostle Santiago will be at 11:30 am and will also be streamed online.

These details were offered by the mayor and the party councillor, José David Cabrera, during the presentation of the May Festival program at the Casa de la Cultura. 


One of the novelties of this edition is that the Plaza de Viera y Clavijo will be enabled as a cultural venue with limited capacity for most of the activities, which will have a "solidarity box office", the proceeds of which will go to the municipal Food Bank.

This is the case of the Acorán festival, the Los Cantaores concert, the +30 Mayos exhibition, by the photographer Isidro Felipe Acosta, the Guayacsanta festival, the performance of Abubukaka, the Canary Islands Day Concert, among others. Tickets can be purchased through www.tickety.es. (However, each of the events is subject to confirmation and the prior authorization of the General Directorate of Public Health of the Government of the Canary Islands, having as plan B the Municipal House of Culture, said Cabrera.)
