This fair is an initiative of the City Council, with the departments of Fiestas, Commerce and Tourism at the head and also has the collaboration of the Association of Merchants of Redován, as well as the Diputación de Alicante and Tourism Costa Blanca, Caja Rural Central and the construction group Zaragoza 2012. “The purpose is to strengthen and stimulate local commerce, reflected through the motto of the fair: for Christmas, buy in Redován”, added Ruiz. For his part, Maite Martínez, Councilor for Commerce, said that “we have been preparing it for a long time and it will be two days with a complete program, where all Redovans can enjoy activities for the whole family.”
In this way, the opening of this fair will take place on Saturday 14 from 4:00 p.m., which will be followed by workshops and children’s games throughout the day. In the afternoon “a giant roscón will be prepared whose tasting, how could it be otherwise in these dates, will serve to make a gesture of solidarity for social purposes with what is achieved through its collection,” said the mayor. In addition, dance and music performances will be carried out by the Redován Dance Association or the La Cochera group, with a concert starting at 10 pm.
On the other hand, on Sunday 15 from 10:30 hours, there will be more children’s games, workshops and inflatables for the little ones, who can also receive Santa Claus and also enjoy family magic shows, as well as the performance by the Rhythmic Gymnastics group of Redován. At 11:00 hours a demonstration will begin by local artisan butchers, “which will show the process of slaughter and elaboration of meat products and traditional sausages, and that will also be completed with a tasting of these high quality products so typical of these dates ”, explained Clara Ezcurra, mayor of Tourism.
It will be during this day when the Association of Merchants will deliver the prizes for the draw of the 4 checks valued at 50 euros as a result of the campaign to promote local commerce in the associated stores, as well as the awards for the best Christmas windows of the municipality, and a Christmas afternoon session entertained with the performance of the jazz trio Up & Down.
