Malaga Christmas Lights 2017 : This will be the Christmas lighting of Calle Larios de Málaga 2017

This christmas,Málaga has welcomed Christmas to the rhythm of Boney M and The Boston Pops Orchestra. On an almost summer afternoon, thousands of people packed the Center yesterday to witness the premiere of a new light and sound show that did not leave anyone indifferent. The inauguration of the Christmas lighting began at 7:00 pm, although previously the company of Miguel Pino encouraged the children with the show of his famous puppet Peneque el Valiente. To the conclusion acted the Cadiz group Andy and Lucas.

The opening of the lighting became a real phenomenon in the city. So much that half an hour before the start of the show and you could almost walk on the street and the crowd was concentrated until the roundabout of the Marqués de Larios mobile in hand to not miss a detail of the lights. Among them was Laura Mira and her husband Bernardo, who arrived at seven at the Center and already found all the mogollón. “We wanted to go for a snack, but we have stayed to take a place,” they acknowledged.

Before the city was lit up, the balloons became the improvised protagonists of the afternoon, since the usual blues with the slogan Merry Christmas that distributes the town hall were joined by other reds scattered around the Ronald McDonald House and some white from the Lo Güeno restaurant. Miguel, one of the people who delivered them, said that the first spectators arrived around 5.30 pm. “At that time the street benches were already full of people waiting,” he recalled.

The person in charge of lighting Christmas was the mayor of the city, Francisco de la Torre, who together with the mayor responsible for Fiestas, Teresa Porras, and different members of the government and opposition team, pressed the button that started the show of lights. At seven o’clock the large 18-meter-high tree lit up the Plaza de la Constitución and seconds later the music began to play on Calle Larios. Although in the first pass only two songs sounded, attendees who walk down the street will enjoy ‘Feliz Navidad’, by Boney M, ‘Christmas Festival’ by The Boston Pops Orchestra and ‘Wizards in Winter’, by Trans-Siberian Orchestra

Like last year, the central street will host two shows every day: at 6:30 p.m. and at 9:30 p.m. and it will last about eight minutes, since the three songs will be played in a row. As could be seen in the premiere, for this year more Christmas songs have been chosen and the lights shine at a somewhat slower pace than the previous year.

Until next January 6, when Their Majesties the Magi of the East leave all their bags full of gifts in the houses of the people of Malaga, about two million points of light will illuminate the streets of the capital. All the bulbs are low consumption and have involved an investment of 573,211 euros in the emblematic areas of the city. On this occasion, Calle Larios, has been decorated with a vault with about 2,630 microled cords, two domes and 18 porticos with windows, stained-glass windows and cathedral-style rosettes that have been made looking as close as possible to that of Malaga.

Christmas will light up this year in Malaga for 44 days and to avoid traffic incidents as a result of the high number of people who come to see the lights, the City will restrict the passage of private vehicles through the Alameda Principal during Fridays, Saturdays, Sundays , holidays and vespers between 18 and 22 hours. As it happened yesterday, since the cars were diverted by Córdoba Street and Alameda de Colón.

Spain was a very different place ; bad communications, profound misery, and big social differences. The rich where very rich, and the poor where very poor.

In this specific time and place, a special human character appeared :  the “bandolero” .

Some people would think of them as spanish Robin Hoods, some other have a less romantic approach. Nevertheless Ronda is the place this weekend to enjoy all the lights and shadows of that time.

Every day there will be a lot of events, including reenactments, gastronomy, various visits to less unknown places, and a lot of Fiesta !!!
