TEULADA-MORAIRA Town Hall and the San Vicente Ferrer Fiestas Committee agreed to suspend this year’s celebrations owing to Covid-19.
Traditionally, the fiestas take place immediately after Easter but rather than hold them later this year, it was decided to postpone the celebrations until 2021.
“This is a decision we did not want to take but we must be sensible and responsible about the situation,” said Teulada-Moraira’s Fiestas councillor Aitor Llobell.
“This is not a year for fiestas for many reasons, above all health reasons,” he declared.
“All resources have to go towards alleviating the health, social and economic crisis that Covid-19 has caused. This means a break with tradition, but it is inevitable.”
