There are two events tonight which might draw locals away from Saturday night television:
1. I am led to believe that the Albergue at La Pedrera will re-open tonight to allow people to meet the new proprietors.
2. The Fiesta Commission have organised a series of competitions for 6 groups of 10 people along the lines of Grand Prix in the Plaza de Toros erected close to Eurener.
Grand Prix is much like “It’s a Knockout” or “Jeux Sans Frontières” with teams completing a variety of tasks to decide upon the winner. Although it is being staged in a bull ring, it will NOT be a bullfight. I am told that there will be some young bulls in one of the final competitions but without risk of harm to them.
The original plaza that was ordered was going to be too small for the number of people who wanted to attend and so, the Fiesta Commission found a much larger one.
I understand that there will be about 500 tickets left on sale on a first come first served basis at the box office situated by the entrance at 7pm. There will also be stalls selling drinks and food to keep the spectators happy and refreshed.
So there you go, you can be a “Billy no mates” and stay at home, join a few Brits at La Pedrera for a drink or enjoy a spectacle the likes of which Bigastro has never seen before.
I think you can work out where Pam and I will be!
