Valencia will be the first large city in Spain to recover its popular festivals, just as they were before the outbreak of the pandemic, given that the failures of this year are anticipated without restrictions. This was revealed by the president of the Generalitat, Ximo Puig, after meeting with the health authorities to address the celebration of said festivities next March.
The novelty undoubtedly feeds the hope that the chicharreros will finally recover their carnivals in the street next June, as has never been ruled out by the City Council of Santa Cruz of Tenerife.
The fact that a Community like Valencia, one of the hardest hit in the worst moments of the covid, open the way to normality for popular celebrations of similar dimensions to the capital’s Carnivals, Pamplona’s Sanfermines or the Seville Fair, is an epidemiological accolade, given that it is justified in a sixth downward wave and having a vaccination of the third dose very advanced. Like in the Canary Islands.
