the Kings Festival in Figueres

Post by Lizjarry » Fri 02 Dec 2016 14:49

If you'd like to join us (already about 10 of us going), you're more than welcome in a 25 seats minibus :

Leaving Céret at 18.00, coming back at 22.00 or 23.00, returning time not decided yet. Date : 5th January 2017
Price : 12 € per person (I don't know about children on knees..., I'll have the answer by then).

Going to Figueres, where the famous Kings Festival takes place every year, celebrating the kings arriving to see new born Jesus.
The Spanish have wonderful religious festivals, they are very keen to live again different scenes from the Bible.
The Kings Festival, overwhelming shows, a procession, along with warm ambiance, lively and fun surprises. The whole population will be there to share this event. Children and families welcome.

The good thing is, somebody is driving us, so no worry about drinking and driving or simply not fancying driving.

Book quickly as there only are about 15 seats left !
Call Liz Jarry at 06 88 85 18 87, I will hold the book for you.

Pretty good timing for the Slaughter of the Firstborn. I hope you're insured.
