    Join Arguineguin in celebrating the Fiestas del Carmen this year starting on Friday 6th July until Monday 16th July 2012.

    There will be plenty to see and do including the Romeria (Saturday 7th July - 19:00hr) where locals dress in traditional Canarian clothing and parade the streets of Arguineguin with music and offerings to 'Virgin del Carmen'. These offerings are local produce, papas con mojo, fruits and fish, much like a harvest festival.

    Full program on the way and dates to be confirmed.

  2. With days to go until the start of the Fiestas del Carmen, the program of events has just been uploaded onto the Mogan.es website in PDF form, which I have broken down into screenshots and added to the Arguineguin Facebook page.

    It might take me a while but I will try my best to add the events here in English, so please do not copy and paste without a link and credit.
