    Will all the locals be on holiday again on the re-scheduled dates?

    Most likely. Btw, does anyone know the dates for the Festival del Virgen Carmen ( or summat like that) in July in Los Gig/Puerto Santiago. Have tried looking online but can't find anything for 2016??

    It's on or around the 16th July all over the Island Dermo. [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

    Thanks Cam, would you know if the 16th is the final day of the festivities or the start? We'll be there until the 14th. Was at it 3 years ago, great vibe around the place and free concerts in the evenings. The fireworks are excellent as well.

    All I know is the 16th is when the big event is. When they put the statue on the boat at the harbour and carry it along the coast for a bit then back again. It's HUGE in Puerto de la Cruz. There are thousands of locals there and it's taken very seriously indeed!

    I think you will miss the Virgen, but you would like San Benito de Abad in La Laguna  This is a bit long but you can flick through, music, dance, animals the lot it is on the 2nd Sunday in July

    Ya, going to miss the main day M, but I think there are festivities each evening in the week leading up to it. If memory serves, there was a funfair just down from Spanish Corner in P. Santiago , last time, and a concert most evenings in the big plaza area by the sea.. Out apartment will be looking out onto the funfair. Don't really mind if I miss the parade, they are all the same anyhow. Might take a spin up to that one in La Laguna. Got lost up there before so we might go to see what its all about properly this time. Thanks M.
