San Fulgencio fiestas are underway

san_fulgencio_fiestasVirgen del Remedio celebrations are just the tonicsan fulgencio fiestas

Some highlights from last year’s fiestas

San Fulgencio is also celebrating at the moment, with its fiestas for the Virgen del Remedio, starting with the parade and coronation for the Fiesta Queens on Saturday and a Tractor Driving Ability Contest on Sunday – this is a small farming village after all. Religion is important too, with Masses each day of the week organised by residents of the different areas.

Next weekend the activities really kick in with the offering of flowers, the parade of floats and the parade for the Virgen. They continue into the week after with a big outdoor picnic dinner and dance, children’s games, a ribbon race, a running race and a comedy play.
