Vilaflor de Chasna, Adeje, Candelaria, Granadilla de Abona and Arona are some of the municipalities in the South that are working on refurbishing their cemeteries for the thousands of people who will come to them these days for religious commemorations linked to remembrance. of deceased loved ones (All Saints, tomorrow, and All Souls, on Thursday).
In addition, many of them have organized activities that revolve around the Canarian tradition of All Souls’ Day, which has been displaced in recent decades in favor of Halloween, an Anglo-Saxon custom that in some other municipalities will also be promoted.
The Adeje City Council reported that it has proceeded to decorate the cemetery, as well as to reinforce the services for this national holiday. The cemetery will be open today from eight in the morning to six in the afternoon and tomorrow and Thursday from eight in the morning to eight at night. The Culture area and the Adeje Folklore School Group have also created a staged night route that will take place on Saturday, at 7:30 p.m., in the Plaza de la Cruz del Llano.
In Granadilla de Abona, maintenance, cleaning and painting work has been intensified in recent weeks, as well as the placement of seasonal flowers. The mayor, Jennifer Miranda, and the councilor for Municipal Public Services, Marcos Antonio Rodríguez, have visited the facilities after the lighting improvement, for an amount of around 59,000 euros.
On the other hand, from the Department of Culture, in collaboration with different groups, such as the musical group Raigrambe, Thynisara and Vecinos de la Calle Arquitecto Marrero Regalado, an initiative has been organized in the historic center in which there will be theater, music, dance and gastronomic tasting. It will be tomorrow, November 1, from 8:00 p.m. in the small square of the El Secadero Cultural Space.
