HALLOWEEN 2017 – Hacienda Del Álamo

HALLOWEEN 2017Halloween is an annual holiday, celebrated each year on October 31, that has roots in age-old European traditions. It originated with the ancient Celtic festival of Samhain, when people would light bonfires and wear costumes to ward off ghosts. In the eighth century, Pope Gregory III designated November 1 as a time to honor all saints; soon, All Saints Day incorporated some of the traditions of Samhain. The evening before was known as All Hallows Eve, and later Halloween. Over time, the feast evolved into a day of activities like trick-or-treating and carving jack-o-lanterns. Around the world, as days grow shorter and nights get colder, people continue to usher in the season with gatherings, costumes and sweet treats…. more 

To ensure success of this event Entertainment, do not forget the disguises: vampires, zombies, ghosts and Any disguises that you you will make.

September Feasts Murcia 2017

September Feasts Murcia

September Feasts Murcia starts with the Pilgrimage to Murcia and official reception to Our Lady of the Fuensanta: 31 of august/Romería hacia Murcia y recepción oficial a Ntra. Sra. de la Fuensanta: 31 de Agosto.

The September Fair of Murcia is a festival of market popular character that sinks its roots in medieval fairs.
Already lost the need and the tradition of the fairs to exchange products and merchandise, there are still traces of what would be its origin, cattle fair and craft stalls. At the September Fair in Murcia, various festivities coincide:

  • Moors and Christians,
  • the International Festival of Folklore in the Mediterranean,
  • “Lemon Pop”,
  • “huertos” in the pleasant garden of the Malecón,
  • handicrafts fair and typical products

Is a great showcase of the region’s gastronomy and wine, not to mention, of course, the fair with its attractions that delight the children and teenagers and the bullfighting fair during this month.
These festivities begin with the descent of the Virgin of Fuensanta from its sanctuary to the Cathedral in Murcia and these parties are closed with the pilgrimage of La Fuensanta back to the sanctuary.

September Feasts MurciaPilgrimage of Our Lady of Fuensanta is the beginning of the feasts of September in Murcia.

The most traditional fiesta in Murcia is the September Fair, because its celebration goes back to the privilege of Alfonso X in 1266.
In its origin the fair was strictly commercial, but little by little it was incorporating fun and festive activities. And in the last years, the party has surpassed the fair: is the moment in which the September Fair in Murcia lasts through its taurine celebrations, attractions, concerts, the Huertos del Malecón – with their tents for the tasting of the typical products of the orchard and the Wine and Food Show , feast of Moors and Christians, etc.

The Malecón Gardens host a total of 15 “Huertos” run by as many peñas huertanas that, once again, offer the typical gastronomy of Murcia in an atmosphere of reunion after the holiday period. In this environment so characteristic of the Fair of Murcia we can also talk about outdoor concerts, with free access (below are related day, time and artist). The Huerto del Malecón is a must to visit if you want to feel the essence of the September Fair.

Moros y Cristianos
The festival of Moors and Christians of the city of Murcia was born as such in 1983, but its gestation occurred in 1981 on the occasion of the commemorative events of the Foundation of Murcia, an event happened on April 21, 831 and was Celebrated thanks to the efforts of the Murcia section of the Association of Friends of the Castles in collaboration with the Defense of the Heritage of the Region of Murcia. They managed to interest various government agencies to get a dignified holiday – the city’s birthday – which was certainly achieved.

BANDO de la HUERTA 2017 – MURCIA

BANDO de la HUERTA 2017 – MURCIA

BANDO de la HUERTA 2017The Bando de la Huerta 2017 is the name given to the parade.

It takes place Tuesday 18th of April. The Spring Festival, held the week after Easter 15th to 23rd of april.

The parade consists of bands, giants, dance groups and chariots pulled by tractors, in which typical elements of the rural area of Murcia is.

Since these floats, people dressed in period costume own food spread the cuisine of the region, such as black pudding, sausages, hot dogs or beans and beverages such as wine or beer.

You can also taste typical dishes such as: michirones, pipirrana or zarangollo, without forgetting the typical Paparajotes in the barracks scattered in various places of the city.

Consequently, the name of Bando de la Huerta is also used to refer to that Tuesday in the parade, referring thus to the general conclusion that that day makes throughout the city.

It includes taking place a very high percentage of Murcia spend the day on the street dressed in costumes huertanos and vegetable garden.

Parks downtown are filled with young people who gather to “botelleo” allowed on this day.

The origin of this event seems to go back to 1851, year in which a young affluent agreed to organize with the intent to mock somewhat from the people of the garden.

Currently this original motivation has disappeared completely and the Bando has become quite the opposite: a celebration in honor of the garden and the traditions associated with it.
