As for security, 40 policemen from both the Policia Local and Policía Nacional will be there not only to make sure nobody hurts themselves, gets lost, or gets sold to Balkan organ harvesters, but also to make sure that people don’t start feeding their individual bonfires municipal beach property.
Obviously, the fire service and ambulance crews will also be on duty.
