The III Trobada de Gegants in Felanitx

gegants_felanitx

If you made your way to Felanitx yesterday to watch the 3rd Trobada de Gegants de Felanitx, you may well have been disappointed. Two years ago when this island-wide giants’ meeting was held for the first time in Felanitx, a total of 28 giants congregated. One has to know that these massively big Mallorcan giants always come in pairs, most often but not only a male-female couple. Last year, 24 giants assembled in Felanitx. Yesterday, however, only twelve giants made their way to Felanitx, or should I rather say ten, as one pair was from Felanitx (es Macolí and na Maria Enganxa). For those of you interested: apart from the two Felanitx gegants, there were two giants present courtesy of the Consell de Mallorca, plus a pair each from Manacor, Alcúdia, Bunyola and Porreres. Well, I don’t know the reasons for this year’s low attendance of giants but one might blame La Crisis. What else could it be?

Let’s hope that today’s affair in Felanitx, the annual Mostra Folklòrica Fira del Pebre Bord, will be more successful and less affected by the economic downturn.
