The presentation for Fiestas del Milagro de Bolnuevo was attended by the parish priest Antonio José Martínez, the mayor of Mazarrón Gaspar Miras, the councillor for festivities Miguel Ángel Peña, the villager of Bolnuevo Elisabeth Vicente and members of the Board of Directors of the Virgen del Milagro and La Associacion de Vecinos Gredas de Bolnuevo

The Councillor for Celebrations, Miguel Ángel Peña, explained all the programming prepared for these upcoming holidays, which will include activities for all ages, and wanted to “thank all the people involved who have worked or collaborated so that these festivities, which after two years without having one, at last can be celebrated again as we remember them “

For his part, the parish priest Antonio José Martínez recalled “the importance of these dates for the Villa de Mazarrón, with its high point on Thursday, November 17, the day of the Miracle, when Holy Mass will be celebrated in Santuario de Purisima  and the Renewal of the Vow of the Town for the Mayor, in addition to the popular pilgrimages for raising the Image on November 13 and lowering the Imagen de la Purísima Concepción to the Bolnuevo Hermitage on November 20, which will end these days of celebration around the devotion to La Purisima”

Finally, the mayor of Mazarrón Gaspar Miras wanted to “invite Mazarron residents and visitors to celebrate and live these festivities so deeply felt by all of us, that after two years without being able to celebrate them they return to the streets, which is why I ask you to enjoy, with the required measures, of all these holidays surrounded by family and friends.”

The festive programme will begin on Friday, November 11, with the Proclamation of the Fiestas del Milagro by Sergio Muñoz Ardil and will end on Sunday, November 20, with the Pilgrimage with the Image of La Purísima Concepción to the Bolnuevo Hermitage.
