    A few readers have been asking about the Fiestas del Carmen in Arguineguin this year and I am happy to now add the program to Gran Canaria Blog as Mogan ayuntamiento website has just updated with all the information.

    Fiestas del Carmen Arguineguin 2013 run from 12th - 21st July and all starts at 21:30h on the opening night with gala queen election and late night party. There is so much happening but make sure you don't miss the Romeria on Saturday 13th July at 18:00h in the church square. Later on at 23.30h in the market square and nearby streets there will be dancing and music with chringuito 'mobile' bars and restaurants.

    Tuesday 16th July is the day of Carmen - this is celebrated with a foam party for children at 12:00h in Plaza de las MaraƱuelas and Mass with Procession accompanied by Banda Gran Canaria. Friday 19th July there is a 'Merengazo' - music from Manny Manuel, DJ Tony Bob and Caracter Latina in Calle Juan Manuel Santana.


    Saturday 20th July is the day of the big water fight parade 'Bajada de la Rama' make sure you don't miss this, it's a very unique parade and be warned you will get wet! This starts at Pino Seco and continues on the usual carnival route through the streets of Arguineguin towards the main market square. Later on the same night there will be another late night dance party with music from Tamarindo and Star Music in the market square from 23:00h and DJ's in Calle Juan Manuel Santana.

    Sunday 21st July is when the statue of Virgin del Carmen has her maritime procession and all the boats sail over to Puerto de Mogan so they can continue with the fiestas. On the 4th August the statue will return from Puerto de Mogan back to Arguineguin. This is always great to watch from the harbour or even high up from a balcony, you can often get some great photographs of the many boats that will cross the Mogan coastline.
