|Top of the list|
For the first time in history (according to Prospero's not very reliable memory) we have a complete schedule of dates for the various events, ferias and fiestas in the municipality of Jimena, with only a couple of tentative ones yet to be set. The first of these is Carnaval, scheduled for the weekend of February 24, 25 and 26, and for which we have stolen the poster from TioJimeno, who is closer to these things than we are (well, he works right next to the Ayuntamiento). We can but thank the Councillor in charge of the municipality's festivities (don't ask who, 'cos we don't know but will find out) for what we hope is a degree of forward planning we are unaccustomed to here. The list is below.>>>
