Menorca's Festivities of Saint Peter

If you on your Menorca holidays and are in the Mahon area then you will find the city is already preparing to celebrate the festivities of San Pedro [Saint Peter] to be held this Saturday, 3 July.  This is a popular celebration where the city council organises a number of activities for the whole family.

From 11:00 to 13:00 and from 17:00 to 18:00 there will be a lateen sail boat demonstration organised by the Amigos del Mar [Friends of the Sea] which is being held in Mahon's port. 

From 19:30 at s'Hort Nou [located in the port area] there will be a game of Joc del Capallet.   After this, the swimming competition will be held across the harbour which is being organised by the Mahon Swimming Club. There will also be a demonstration of remote controlled model sailing boats, and then the prize giving ceremony for the swimming competition.

The night will be brought to an end with a concert of popular and sea-faring songs with a street party being held at midnight with a performance from the musical group, Funkdazion.

So for something different to do on your holiday in Menorca, Corona Holidays recommend that you head to Mahon this Saturday, 3 July.
