Granadilla celebrates the magical night of San Juan with bonfires and music on the coast

The night of San Juan is celebrated Thursday, June 23, with two large bonfires at two points along the municipality's coastline. The Council of Granadilla de Abona, through its Department of Culture and Festivals, has organized for this magical night the traditional lighting of the fogaleras (bonfires) and various musical performances.

This special day with which the summer solstice is celebrated, will have two bonfires that will be located on the central beach of Médano and on the large beach of Los Abrigos; any other bonfires in bathing areas are totally prohibited.

In El Médano, from 7:30 p.m., there will be parades with batucada and the Guajeiros and Kuliquitacas del Sur comparsas along the Picacho promenade, and there will be a performance, in the central square, by DJ Fabrizio, from 8:00 p.m. to 10:00 p.m. As the final touch to the event, the groups 'Ni un Pelo de Tonto' and 'Los Lola' will go on stage. In Los Abrigos, starting at 9:00 p.m., the batucada ‘Guajeiros’ will perform next to the bonfire.

Also, from the Security area, from the night of June 23 to 24, the security device will be extended with the essential purpose of ensuring security and that the night takes place without incident. On the other hand, from the City Council, through the General Services area and the public company Sermugran, they send a message to the people who will meet on this special night, asking for greater involvement and environmental awareness to care for the environment and that, together, let's collaborate in the collection of waste and thus avoid the state in which the environment is left on other occasions.
