Baleares Day

March 1st will be a holiday here in Mallorca, and all over the Balearic Isles, the annual Día de las Islas Baleares. A festive programme has been prepared by the Govern de les Illes Balears and the Ajuntament de Palma, starting from today and lasting until Sunday, March 4th. Programme details can be downloaded from the Govern website (Documents: Programa Mallorca).

Activities include a giant Scalextric race track in Jardins de s’Hort del Rei, a theatre performance of La Casa de Bernarda Alba (Federico García Lorca) at the Teatre Pricipal, performed by a cast of partly illiterate gipsy women, a Trofeu de tir de fona tournament in Parc de la Mar, a Petanca tournament at l’Estadi Balear, Open Doors at the seat of the President of the Govern de les Illes Balears at the Consolat de Mar (a must if you have not been there), Open Doors at the newly restored Llotja, a couple of horse trotting Trofeus de Trot at the Hipòdrom de Son Pardo, an art and craft market at Sa Feixina, Passeig de Sagrera, Drassana, Carrer del Consolat, Passeig del Born and in Antoni Maura, some Ball de Bot in Ses Voltes, Open Doors at Castell de Bellver and Palau de l’Almudaina, Open Doors at nearly all the museums and galleries in Palma and the rest of the island, such as Es Baluard, Museu de Son Marroig in Deià, Fundación Yannick y Ben Jakober near Alcúdia, Ciutat Romana de Pol·lèntia i Museu Monogràfic in Pollença, and a few things more, too numerous to mention here. Enjoy your day off.
