The mayor of Blanca, Pedro Luis Molina, along with the Department of Celebrations and the rest of the Government Team, have decided to suspend the festivities of Blanca and all its neighborhoods until next October 31, 2020, and work is being done on a alternative programming. The suspension includes the festivities in honor of San Pedro del Alto Palomo, the Youth Week of the Station of Blanca, the Youth Week of Blanca, the Encierros, the Bullfighting Fair and Patron Saint Festivities in honor of San Roque de Blanca and the festivities in honor of the Virgen del Pilar de la Estación de Blanca. This decision has been made based on a criterion of prudence to prevent outbreaks in the face of the new normality, following the instructions set by health institutions to avoid mass events and physical contact. As the COVID-19 pandemic evolves in our municipality, the possibility of holding festive, sports, cultural and religious events on specific days and respecting all capacity, safety and hygiene measures will be valued. "It has been a very difficult decision, but we believe that this moment is the most responsible.
We will continue to monitor the evolution of the pandemic and what the health authorities dictate so that, if they allow it, they can hold small events without crowding in days designated for the blanqueños and blanqueñas.
We are working on an alternative program, "said the mayor of Blanca, Pedro Luis Molina.
