Festive transformation in Benidorm

The clubs take the most central streets to start decorating their premises for the start of the Major Festivities, which start on Friday.

The countdown has begun.

The supporters of Benidorm yesterday took the main streets of the city center to convert what are usually bars, restaurants or empty venues before the imminent start of the Major Festivities.

In this way, the roads located in neighborhoods such as El Calvari – La Palma, San Roque, La Biga, Asuncion, El Molí, Olivos, Naranjos, Tomás Ortuño, La Parra – and also in other downtown areas, such as Los Carrascos , the surroundings of Apolo XI or Marqués de Comillas and the old town, will live during these days an authentic transformation for the enjoyment of the festive.

Although the total number of venues that will open their doors as festive venues is not yet known, given that the police are still reviewing the documentation provided by the associated clubs, the number of venues outside the Associació de Penyes to whom this year has been given the go-ahead.

Sources of the councils of Fiestas and Citizen Security advanced that will be a total of 19 non-associated clubs that have received authorization, four fewer than last year.

In all cases, these are clubs formed by adults, with the exception of one of them, which meets the minimum requirement of having 60% of its members of legal age, but in which the age of its components ranges from the 23 and the 16 years, so that the Local Police will rotate inspection to verify that all the presented documentation is correct.

More requirements
The City of Benidorm this year has given a new twist in the festero regulation to try to eradicate definitely the peñas formed mostly by children , which are the most conflicted by the scuffles and unauthorized consumption of alcohol and drugs and everything what that generates among the minors.

Therefore, among the requirements imposed this year was the obligation that all non-associated clubs should be legally constituted and have the requirements that, in turn, the Generalitat requires all festeras entities, such as having a CIF, approved statutes, etc. The mayor of Fiestas, Jesus Carrobles, said that it is about seeking “more and more security and reduce risks among the youngest.”
