Coming up soon…

One of the floats from last year's Cabalgata

Help!  I can’t keep up with the action in Jumilla: we attended several events during the National Folklore Festival this weekend; I visited the miniferia del vino on Saturday; we sat outside Bar California with friends, watching the spectacular Entrada Cristiana (with a few Moros managing to sneak into the procession too) and yesterday we enjoyed the hospitality of AAVV San Anton.  No time to report everything, as lots more coming up in the Fiesta de la Vendimia, however I will post some photos once the festivities are over.

This week’s highlights:

Monday 16th August

 22.00 Entrance of the Moors. Procession from Arco de San Roque to Plaza del Rollo.

Tuesday 17th August

20.30 Children´s Procession from Plaza del Rollo to the Mercado via Calle Canovas and Avenida Levante.

22.15  Representation of the Moros and Cristianos embassies: a great spectacle ending with fireworks.

 Wednesday 18th August

 21.00 Offering of the grapes and first must to the Niño de las Uvas. Jardín de la Glorieta.

 Thursday 19th August

 11.00 Exhibition of floats taking part in the Cabalgata. Paseo Poeta Lorenzo Guardiola.

20.30 Cabalgata Tradicional.  The traditional procession leaves from Plaza del Rollo, going through the streets of Jumilla: we like this one as they hand out samples of wine!

 Friday 20th August

12.00 Parade of horses and carriages through the streets of Jumilla: leaving from Teatro Vico, along Calle Cánovas, Avenida de la Asunción, and finishing on Paseo Poeta Lorenzo Guardiola.

 Saturday 21st August

 19.00 Gran Cabalgata del Vino.  This is the infamous procession, where you get soaked in red wine if you get too close to the floats (wear old clothes!), and everybody has a good time.
