Last week, ‘Veranos de Barrio’ was launched in the ‘La Cañadica’ neighbourhood with the screening of the movie ‘How to Train Your Dragon 3’. This initiative, organized from Festejos, had a great reception from the neighbours and, especially, by the youngest. Around 200 people attended to enjoy all the activities exposed in the programming; movie, musical, puppet and magic viewing. All this during the three days dedicated to each neighbourhood, that is, Wednesday, Thursday and Friday.

In this way, the Mayor of the area, Miguel Ángel Peña, explained that “it is an innovative and pioneering project, with the aim of giving life to the summer nights of the neighbourhoods, aimed especially at children and families, so that they enjoy together with their neighbours and thus also avoid crowds and that they have to move from the Port of Mazarrón, where this type of activity has always been traditionally carried out ”.

In the same way, he announced that “on the occasion of the Virgen del Carmen festivities we will be on the sports track of the Barrio San Isidro from July 15, with a slightly more extensive programme due to the celebration of these festivals” . Thus, on Wednesday, July 15, the screening of the film ‘CAMPEONES’ will take place and on July 16 and 17, residents will be able to enjoy various performances including one from ‘GRUPO ANTICICLÓN’ (July 16) and the Local artist “TANIA” and “monologuista” (July 17) with the support of the Department of Youth. Finally, and by way of farewell, on Sunday, July 19, “Veranos de Barrio” will stage the famous children’s musical “Bella y Bestia”.

Miguel Ángel Peña warned that “in order to attend these events it is essential to do so with a mask, even if we are keeping the distances between family units. It is time to intensify surveillance for outbreaks of coronavirus, and it is mandatory to use the masks by all attendees except in the cases provided by law.

As for the rest of the programming, the last two weeks of July are reserved for the Cañada de Gallego (22, 23 and 24) and La Aceña (29, 30 and 31), while in August the turn will be for El Salitre (5, 6 and 7), Bolnuevo (12, 13 and 14), La Majada (19, 20 and 21) and La Ermita (26, 27 and 28).
