The First Councillor for Carchuna-Calahonda, Concepción Abarca, said that each summer they hold a themed market and this year it is based on the flower-power 70’s. She explained that there would be 50-odd stands sporting handicraft and traditional products like honey. In fact, there will be a panel from a bees hive for visitors to see what goes on.
Friday will have a ‘fire show’ starting at 22.30h and every day there will be juggling, mono-cycle riding and the art of making animals from balloons, etc.
For the youngsters there will be double session of puppet theatre plays and story telling each evening: 20.30h and 21.30h. There will also be a carousel and – perhaps controversially – a ‘pony caravan.’
And of course, the market will be awash with 70’s music and the stall holders will all be dressed as hippies – some won’t have to dress for the occasion, of course.
Sounds like good fun and anybody valiant enough to brave the N-340 through Torrenueva will be suitably rewarded with a great day at the 70’s market.
