Finally it is FRIDAY !! Time to relax ? Oh no, there is no time to chill this weekend.
This seems to be the weekend everything happens and thank god the calima is ending on Saturday !!!
Fiestas Del Carmen starts in Arguineguin tonight FRIDAY at 21:30 with gala queen election and late night party. Saturday 13th July at 18:00 in the church square, it is the celebration of Romeria. Get dressed in the lovely traditional Canarian dress and the celebration continues later on at 23.30h in the market square. You will be abel to buy drinks and food, so bring some cash 🙂
The festival which started in 1992, has musicians and groups most representative of jazz from all the different eras and countries playing the most diverse jazz styles. Meaning that you don’t have to be a jazz-fanatic or anything. However, here you have the chance to see proper good musicians preforming proper good music !!!
It all happens in beautiful Las Palmas in different venues, some concerts are free and some you will have to hurry up and get a ticket for.
A couple of days ago we went walking around in the little fish village Arguineguin, based in the south of the Island. As many times before we went up towards the Ancora center. But this time we realized that we actually had never tried the “new” ice cream cafe/bar. ( it has actually been there 1 year now, I think )
Anyways. OMG ! This is definitely a MUST !!!
They have lovely Italian-style ice cream, milkshakes, frappés, proper coffee etc. AND crépes that they make in front of you filled with lovely fresh strawberries and bananas, served with cream or ice cream of you own liking….mhmmmmmm……
You will find it on the left side of the center and the name is LOS ALISIOS.
We are so going back to this place and with this heatwave we are having now, maybe more then once a day 😉
The are open from Tuesday till Sunday from 2:00 – 22:00
One of the days workshop is developed to serving your personal development in a way that is practical, psychologically insightful as well as spiritually inspiring.
I think we all need some kind of guiding in these times we are in now. There is definitely a lot happening in our world and sometimes it is hard to feel like you are following the right path or are truly being true to yourself.
THIS SHOULD BE INTERESTING ! 😀
However, if you want to attend the event you will have to reserve a place. Hurry up and DO it NOW !
If you have visited Gran Canaria before or are living here, you know it seem to always be a fiesta of some sort down here.
In Arguineguín and Puerto de Mogán the Fiestas del Carmen in July are very important. This is when the local residents take the statue of the Virgin Mary in a maritime procession from one end of the coastline of the municipality to the other, with a multitude of boats specially decorated for the occasion following the procession.
And THIS year it is the 100 anniversary. ( 1913 – 2013 )
However, DO NOT MISS the famous water parade “Bajada de la Rama ” on Saturday 20th July !!!!!!! Meet up at the park PINO SECO in Arguineguin (the street down from Hiper Dino ) at 18:00 o´clock ! Bring some drinks and prepare to get WET !!!
A little tip : put your mobile phone, money etc. in plastic bags with a zipper 😉
