On July 10, the town of Es Canar celebrates its patron’s day with patron saint festivities that will last two days and that this year adapt its format with a program that tries to boost the activity of the restaurants, with the objective of always maintaining the spirit of community.
To avoid crowds such as those that occurred in the paella contest or concerts, with dozens or hundreds of people gathered in small spaces, these activities will be carried out in collaboration with some restaurants (at the moment there are already half a dozen), the that will strictly apply the safety regulations against coronavirus. As for the concerts, on Friday the 10th and Saturday the 11th, from 1:00 pm to 12:00 am, there will be ‘micro performances’ by different artists. As for the paella contest, this will be converted into the first edition of the World Paella Fair in which those interested can taste the different ‘versions’ of this dish in each establishment.
As for the rest of the activities, another novelty this year is that the mass and the subsequent parade of cars. Thus, starting at 7:00 p.m. on Friday, the ceremony will take place in the Canar chapel and around 7:45 pm the cars will be blessed, thus beginning a tour of the main streets of the town. The next day, the planned activities are a bicycle tour through the area of Cala Nova, Es Canar and S’Argamassa. This parade will have the Plaza Canar as a meeting point and will depart at 09:30 a.m. And also a ‘Light Sailing open day‘ in the bay using ‘gamba’ and windsurfing boats that will start at 10:00 a.m.
