The Santiago de la Ribera Outlet Fair returns to the Barnuevo esplanade during the Easter long weekend, from 6 to 9 April, with the participation of 16 businesses and a wide variety of products. The Fair, which will offer discounts of up to 50 percent, includes the organisation of an extensive programme of activities for all audiences and daily raffles, which complement the commercial attraction. The mayor of San Javier, José Miguel Luengo and the councillor for Commerce, Héctor Verdú, today presented the 13th edition of “a consolidated Fair that acts as a driving force for the revitalisation of local commerce and a focal point for attracting the public”, said the mayor.
In a ceremony attended by the presidents of the associations “San Javier, Unique”, Miguel Angel Callejas and “San Javier, City of Shopping”, Carlos Calvo, the mayor of Commerce, Héctor Verdú highlighted the wide and varied commercial offer of the Fair, which includes gastronomy, fashion, home, and accessories, among others. The fairground will be open from 6 to 9 April from 10:00 to 21:00h and in addition to the commercial booths, will host two other booths occupied by the Brotherhood of the Holy Solitude of the Mar Menor and the Brotherhood of San Francisco Javier, to promote the processions of the local Holy Week, which will be held on Holy Thursday in San Javier and Good Friday in Santiago de La Ribera.
The Santiago de la Ribera Outlet Fair, one of the pioneers in the Region of Murcia, is characterised by its location next to the Mar Menor, on Barnuevo beach, and its programme of activities during the four days of the Fair. As in previous editions, the programme includes free baptisms in water sports such as sailing, dragon boating, kayaking, paddle surfing and canoeing. There will also be various workshops for making Easter eggs and cards, creating badges, spaces for photos and bookmarks, among others. Performances and workshops by Full Dance “Zumba and Bachata” complete the programme, which includes raffles every day at 20h. The library will also be present at the municipal stand with the bibliomarket, where books will be given away, and a photo booth will allow visitors to take home a souvenir of the event.
The mayor, José Miguel Luengo invited to spend these days in the Barnuevo esplanade and visit the Outlet Fair and recalled other attractions such as the landscape, gastronomy and Holy Week, which continues to grow in the municipality, with the Good Friday procession in Santiago de la Ribera and Maundy Thursday in San Javier. The mayor of Commerce, Héctor Verdú pointed out the consolidation of this Fair which is now in its 13th year with a programme of events that enriches it and makes it more attractive. In the same sense the representatives of the traders spoke, inviting the visitors to take advantage of the discounts as well as to enjoy the environment and the Holy Week in these days of holidays.
