May has arrived with lots of fiestas and parades of Moors and Christians. Let’s start with my favourite parade, which takes place in Biar. The best day to visit Biar is on the 10th of May when you will experience fiesta, tradition, music, fires, fireworks and a lot more.
There are, of course, more parades scheduled for May and the programme is as follows:
Petrer 17th to 21st, Alcoy 22nd, Muro de Alcoy 11th to 104h, Salinas 28th to 29st.
Also there are specials events like the “Feria de Mayo” held in Torrevieja from 23rd to 27th of May or “Romería de San Pascual” another popular pilgrimage in Monforte del Cid-Orito.
I also recommend “Las Cruces de Mayo” – “The Cross of May” – when crosses are made with flowers. Come and have a look in La Cruz Street in Santa Pola to get an idea about what is like. The most beautiful ones are shown in the old quarter of Alicante “Barrio la Cruz”.
From 1st to 3rd June the international karate tournament will take place in Santa Pola.
That’s all for May friends.
