NIJAR is celebrating the festive season with a packed calendar of Christmassy activities throughout the municipality.
The events have been organised by Nijar council in collaboration with various local associations.
Unveiling details of the Christmas programme, Nijar mayor Esperanza Perez Felices described the Festive Season as “a symbol of everything which family union means, but also among the inhabitants of this municipality, hence the council aims to promote co-existence and maintaining traditions in all the districts.”
NIjar Culture councillor and provincial deputy Yolanda Lozano underlined the fact that “we have a large area, and so what we have done is to try and organise varied activities in each place, and for this resident participation is fundamental, as thanks to them we can reach every corner.”
The councillor said the local authority had held a coordination meeting in which different associations, and representatives from the local police and civil protection had taken part, to “analyse the technical and manpower needs of each event.”
Highlights of Nijar’s Christmas programme include Christmas markets, family shows and street processions in Campohermoso and Nijar town.
On the evening of Friday 21 there will be a Christmas concert courtesy of the municipal band and the Nijar Cultural Association in the Anunciacion church.
Looking ahead to next month, the Three Kings will be visiting Nijar on January 5, going through different areas and giving out sweets and gifts.
