Christmas returns to Xàbia accompanied by an intense program for the whole family, especially designed for the smallest of the houses and in which several council department and the trade associations Xàbia Histórica, Xàbia Port and Xàbia Arenal have come together to develop.

From today Friday 16th December until January 6 you can enjoy concerts, visits from Papa Noel or the Reyes Magos, an alternative New Year’s Eve, playroom, afternoon sessions, cinema, workshops and sports.

One of the highlights for these festive holidays will be the new edition of Nadal Jove-Esportiu, which from December 26 to 28 will bring together workshops and exhibitions from clubs and sports groups in the municipality together with other attractions such as inflatables, trampolines, simulators, storytellers and shows.

Councilor Alberto Tur presented this Christmas classic in Xàbia that will also have two appointments in natural spaces. The first, an excursion through the Cap de San Antoni and La Plana organized by the Centro Excursionista de Xàbia (CEX) on Sunday 18th December with departure at 9.00 am from the Plaza de la Constitución and another on Wednesday 28th December promoted by the Club Nautico de Jávea for those who want to try out a rowing boat.

Tur thanked all the clubs and entities for their involvement in this Nadal Esportiu, which will also give space to traditional games, wooden games and children with a psychomotor area.
In addition, a musical show “YA ES NAVIDAD”, a collective Zumba class and a storyteller with Christmas stories have been programmed on the central stage of the space.

Regarding the activities organized by the trade associations, Papa Noel’s visit to the three Christmas trees stands out (Friday 16th December to the Historic Center, Saturday 17th December to the Arenal and Friday 23rd December to the port) and the party on December 31st at noon in which the turn of the year will be celebrated by all the family with some chimes in the Plaza de La Iglesia.

The agenda will close with the acts for the visit of the Reyes Magos with the collection of letters in the parish of the port, the Royal Camp that will be installed in the Riurau d’Arnauda and the magical parade on the evening of Thursday 5th January.
