Girona Fairs 2013: 5 activities you can’t miss
From October 25th to November 3rd 2013 the famous Girona Fairs will take place. During these days Girona dresses for a party to celebrate the festivities of its patron, Saint Narcis, and the streets get filled with activities for the own and the foreign. From Camping Mas Nou we want to recommend you 5 activities you can’t miss:
1. Dance of the giants
To start the Fair, nothing better than attending de Dance of the giants which will take place on Friday 25 at 19.30 at Plaça del Vi, half an hour before the speech that officially inaugurates the celebrations. An amazing show both for the older and younger ones in which the giants will dance to the rhythm of the music and the joy. Get the party started!
2. Castles Day
Nothing better than getting the most out of these festive days to enjoy one of the most popular Catalan tradition: castles of people. On Sunday 27th at 11.30, at Plaça del Vi too, you’ll be able to witness the spectacular castles by Marrecs de Salt, Capgrossos de Mataró and Minyons de Terrassa.
3. Girona has heart
Solidarity is one of the protagonists of the Girona Fairs 2013. As a sample, you can attend the event organised by Carites Girona: “Help us prove Girona has heart”. From 19.30 onwards on Friday November 1st the stairs of the Cathedral will be full of lightened candles in an event with heart.
4. Popular and traditional games
