Fiesta Commission of the fiestas honouring Mare de
Déu de Loreto, the patron saint of the port
zone, has organised a symbolic fiesta programme to mark
what would have been the final three days of the festivities

their balconies, façades and shop windows to
bring some colour and life to the marine zone whilst
the church bells will ring out in honour of the patron
saint as well as health personnel and others who have
provided for us and watched over us all during this
COVID-19 health crisis. The programme will finished
with a thunderous launch of fireworks on September 8th,
an event that will mark the start of the preparations
for the 125th anniversary in 2021.
