Last Thursday the poster and the programme of the activities of the IX edition of the Nautical and Cuttlefish Fair (from 4th to 6th of April) was presented in Alcúdia, with various municipal representatives in attendance, among others the mayoress of Alcúdia Coloma Terrasa, city councillor responsible for fairs and commerce Carme Garcia, the councillors of the local administration Juan L. González and Laura Serra, as well as the councillors of the opposition Beatriz Oneto and Domingo Bonnín. Also present were the representative of the Port Authority Joan Gili and Francisca Reynés from Alcudiamar, as well as representatives of the restaurants that will participate in the gastronomic fair.
The councillor Garcia gave a preview of the principal novelties of this year´s fair, in which 23 restaurants and 30 nautical companies will participate. One of the highlights of the presentation was the performance of Los Gabytos of the Aragon family, a charity act through the volunteer group Piruletas of the association against cancer and the Sonrisa Médica. This emphasized the fact that the fair will be a family orientated event.
Among the performances to take place during this nautical event are the group of girls called "El Alba", who will dance sevillanas, various local dj´s who will play music in the gastronomic tent, as well as the show of Sarau Alcudienc and the parade of S´Estol del Rei en Jaume and the Alcúdia Giants.
On the other hand, the councillor Garcia praised the collaboration of the Fishermen´s Guild, which will participate also in the gastronomic tent this year. She announced that the public can vote for the best stand and the best tapa and informed about an exhibition dedicated to the sea of Alcúdia, with photos of the various beaches.
