At 11am, the traditional civic act will take place with the presence of the Mayor of Torrevieja, Eduardo Dolon Sanchez.
This, of course, will be the first time that Eduardo has presided over the EU day celebrations as mayor.
Eduardo will be joined by representatives of the local European community who will offer their own interventions before the official raising of the EU flag to the ‘Hymn to Europe’.
European entertainment continues throughout the morning of May 9 in the main town square with a performance of Sevillanas dancing by a group of French visitors.
Dance group, ‘Duende Andaluz’ has coincided its annual visit to Torrevieja with our spectacular ‘Feria de Mayo’ which will be inaugurated later during the same day.
