Granadilla in full swing of its patronal fiestas
Granadilla de Abona has been celebrating its major fiestas in honour of San Antonio de Padua and Nuestra Señora del Rosario which this year pay tribute to women workers in the tomato sector.
The programme, which has more than 30 acts, was presented by the Mayor, José Domingo Regalado and councillor for culture and festivities, Eudita Mendoza, in the courtyard of the Franciscan Convent.
Explaining the theme, Sr. Regalado said they wanted to pay deserved recognition to a sector that had played a crucial role in the economy of the municipality and that were fundamental for the maintenance of so many families in a difficult time.
Numerous entertainment and sporting events have already taken place, attracting thousands of people but there is still more to come up until June 16th.
On the night of June 12th, mass will be celebrated and there will be a procession and pyrotechnic exhibition, ending with a festival enlivened by the Gomera Sensation orchestras.
On June 13th, there will be a concert in honour of San Antonio de Padua with Los Gofiones and on Sunday, June 16th, the music comes from the hand of the Music Band of the Society José Reyes Martín, with the participation of the Music Band Our Lady of Lourdes del Valle de Guerra, in the Casino XI of June.
