A few days before the celebration of the Valencian Community Day, Benidorm began on Sunday the commemorative events of October 9 with a concert by SM La Nova at Julio Iglesias auditorium in Parque de l'Aigüera. Directed by Francisco José Rovira, the band performed eight pieces of Valencian traditional and festive music songs. Among those attending the concert were the councilors of Culture and Festivities, Jaime Jesús Pérez and Jesús Carrobles, who have reported on the rest of the events scheduled for October 9 and which are concentrated on the weekend.
Specifically on Saturday and Sunday, the traditional "Fair of typical products of the region", organized by the Comissió de Festes Majors Patronals, is resumed. As usual, the Fair will be inaugurated once the institutional plenary session is over on October 9, which will be held at 10 a.m. at the Castell, in which Benidorm Musical Union will participate and in which the Cultural Award will be delivered, ' Ciutat de Benidorm', to the Choral Group.
The Councilor for Festivities has pointed out that "the novelty of this year is the change of location, since for reasons of space and compliance with health regulations, it has been considered appropriate that the Fair be held in Elche Park and in the neighboring street Mayor José Such for greater comfort and security ”.
The Fair is an opportunity to find in the same space some of the best products of the region, as well as to contemplate the interpretation of the 'peuet dance' by the Queens and Ladies while collaborating with the Commission in the collection of funds for our Fiestas ”.
The president of the Commission, Batiste Rostoll, has detailed that "a dozen stalls will be installed, where you can buy bakery products, salted meats, sausages, oils, wines and nougats." In addition, as in previous editions, a space has been given to different social and cultural entities, and to various establishments; and it will also be installed in a bar with popular prices.
On the same Saturday, in commemoration of the Valencian Community Day, the Castell will be illuminated with the colors of the regional flag.
Within the same programming of the Valencian Community festival, on Sunday, the 10th, there will be a concert by the SM l’Illa, starting at 6:00 pm in Julio Iglesias auditorium in Parque de l’Aigüera.
The councillor of Culture has pointed out that “music bands, recognized as Intangible Cultural Heritage, are one of the pillars of Valencian culture and transmitters of our tradition, hence, in the Valencian festivity they always have an important place within the schedule planned by the City Council ”.
