Motril revives traditional ball with great success

HUNDREDS of Motril residents participated in the ‘Cultural Ball’ on Saturday. The event was organised by the Cultural Centre and paid for the town council and the Commonwealth of Costa Tropical Municipalities, and was conceived as a tribute to traditional dances held in the Paseo de las Explanadas during the 50s and 60s.
“We decided to celebrate it at the Plaza de Coronacion so that a larger number of residents could participate,” said acting Mayor of Motril, Luisa Garcia Chamorro. “The ball had a high attendance last year, when we decided to bring it back almost four decades after it was last celebrated.”
The Orchestra Tracks was in charge of entertaining the crowds, who were also able to follow the Eurovision song contest thanks to large TV screens placed in the square.
“Eighty-four years after it was first held, we are bringing back this activity that I hope will be preserved for many years to come,” said head of the Cultural Centre, Nicolas Garcia.
