La mare de Déu del Carme, Port de Pollença local party 2016
It’s one of the most awaited by the Port de Pollença population, because this celebration opens the summer party season in our town. A good range of activities for all ages and tastes that give color and festive atmosphere to Puerto de Pollença between 8 and 17 July.
Verbena, concerts, dances ... and the most representative act: the sea procession in honor of la Verge del Carme, the patron saint of Puerto Pollensa’s parish. After the solemn mass in the Church of la Mare de Deu del Carme at 18.30h, in which the Colonya choir will put the musical note, begins the sea procession; a tour done by all the fishing boats decorated for the occasion for the bay of Pollença and captained by the boat of the fishermen's association with the virgin and images of Sant Pere. A worth seeing sight that each year brings more attendees.
Many coastal towns of Mallorca celebrate this festival with a sea procession, but the Port de Pollença's one is undoubtedly one of the showiest.
This year, the sea procession will be held on Sunday July 17. It is also worth a stroll through the craft market located in the Paseo Anglada i Camarassa the evenings of Thursday, Saturday and Sunday.
