CHRISTMAS activities the council says are designed to bring people together to enjoy the Festive Season continue in Huercal-Overa right up to Three Kings day.
On the evening of Friday December 27 there is a traditional ‘castañada’ in the Plaza de Constitucion, an event centred around roasted chestnuts and doughnuts.
The square will also be the venue for two New Year’s Eve parties, one at 11am for children to say goodbye to 2019 and one at 11pm for the grown-ups, complete with grapes, music and dancing.
It wouldn’t be a Spanish Christmas without a Three Kings procession, which in Huercal-Overa will begin at 6pm on Sunday January 5 at the sports grounds and will end up at the municipal theatre, where children will be able to hand over their letters.
Earlier that day Balthasar, Melchior and Gaspar will pay a visit to the elderly and the poorly.
