Eivissa Town Council has presented its Christmas and New Year’s Eve program. The little ones will be the protagonists of these parties in a program of activities that will feature numerous virtual activities and events adapted to the new security measures due to the situation caused by COVID-19.
During the presentation of the Festivities, in a telematic press conference, the mayor of Eivissa, Rafa Ruiz, explained that the main shows will be concentrated in the Reina Sofía park, outdoors and with prior entry reservation, and different sessions will be held to try to accommodate as many families as possible. In addition, many activities will be decentralized, taking them to the neighborhoods, to avoid displacement and so that children can also enjoy Christmas in their usual environment.
‘We will have surprises like a real walk throughout the municipality. The Three Kings will arrive this year more discreetly than in other years, but they have confirmed their attendance and will ride in convertible cars throughout the municipality so that the boys and girls can see them from their homes’, said the mayor.
For her part, the Festivity Councilor, Montse García, has highlighted the fact that ‘these parties will be a little different from those of previous years, but from the Eivissa Town Hall Festivity Department we have worked so that all boys and girls May they live the illusion of Christmas”.
