Miguelturra will celebrate, in 2022, its most emblematic Festival declared of National Tourist Interest, the Carnival, which, due to the Covid 19 pandemic, had to be suspended last February 2021.
In a first meeting of the Celebrations Department, headed by the Area Councilor, Diego Rodríguez, with the Association of Peñas, among whom were the president of the Association, Raúl Domínguez; The King of Carnival, Serafín Delgado, together with the rest of the association’s board of directors and representatives of the carnival clubs, to discuss various points, the main point was stipulated to discuss the possible celebration of the next Carnival festivities in 2022 that They will be held from Friday, February 25, to Sunday, March 6.
The decision to celebrate the Carnival was made after a vote was taken among those present, who unanimously expressed their support, although under the prism of responsibility, since this celebration will be subject to the current health regulations, according to the evolution of the pandemic and with the corresponding limitations.
As Diego Rodríguez and Raúl Dominguez explain, “this is a Carnival much anticipated by the people of Miguelturra that, at a minimum, will maintain all the prizes, expenses and the agreement of the clubs with respect to the year 2020”.
Although it is true, the mayor continues, it will be necessary to establish, according to health regulations, capacity restrictions, adaptation of some emblematic events and the reinvention or modification of many of the traditional events.
But what is certain “is that the residents of Miguelturra can now start making their new costumes for the next Carnival 2022”, concludes Diego Rodríguez.
