This year, the Council has not only increased the number of tables from 500 to 700 but also raised the price per table to 15 euros, up from 10 euros last year, to accommodate more attendees and enhance the event.

Before the festivities begin, there will be a Floral Offering to the Virgin of La Candelaria, honouring the Patroness of the Canary Islands. This ceremony sets the stage for a night filled with local culinary delights such as kneaded gofio and fine local wines, featuring the traditional Baile de Taifas and performances by orchestras at Plaza Europa, making it a vibrant celebration of local culture and community spirit.
