Correfoc Fun At Sant Sebastià

Don’t go shopping in Palma de Mallorca today. Everywhere but bars will be shut for festivities all day today, as the Festa de Sant Sebastià is being celebrated. The saint is the patron saint of Mallorca’s capital city, Palma. Festive celebrations have already been going on since last Saturday and will continue until next Saturday, January 22nd. The usual brochure has been published by the folks of the town hall in Palma (see below). A detailed programme of events can be consulted online on the Ajuntament de Palma website (Catalan only).

Palma was heaving with Pop, Rock and folklore music last night when plenty of open air concerts were presented in Plaça Major, Plaça Joan Carles I, Plaça de Cort, Plaça Sant Francesc, Plaça Espanya, Plaça Santa Eulàlia, Plaça de la Reina, Plaça de l’Olivar, Costa de la Pols and Passeig Artesania. There also were Castellers, Gegants and Capgrossos as well as plenty of Fogerons. Activities programmed for today include a cycling race, a mass walk up to Castell de Bellver as well as torradas all over town. On Saturday, festivities will culminate in the annual atiàr foc fire run, an exciting and spectacular correfoc run combined with fires and demons plus a truly unique fireworks presentation. The event will start January 22nd, at 20h00, culminating at 21h00 in Parc de la Mar, below Palma’s Cathedral.
