Mojácar is making the final preparations for its “Romantic Night” and “The Most Beautiful Kiss in the World”, with an open invitation to all residents and visitors to come and enjoy this extra special evening together.
The date is Friday 22 June, when Mojácar will hold the event for the second year running, along with 350 other Spanish, French, Italian and Belgian towns that make up “The Most Beautiful Towns and Villages in Spain” as well as in those other countries.
Organised by the local Town Council in collaboration with the Asociación de Comerciantes de Mojácar Pueblo, from 10 p.m. Mojácar will be ready with a heart-felt welcome for everyone to fall in love with the town and each all over again. A night especially designed for romantics or those seeking a new love story of their own and, on a magical evening in an enchanting place like Mojácar, anything can happen.
All this week, the 4 buses that run the circular route around the town have been decked with 50 red helium balloons, surprising their passengers, in anticipation of the 4,000 balloons that will shine on Friday, with an extra 600 handed out to the restaurants, bars and shops.
It´s a night for the whole town to give in to love, when everyone will be greeted with LED illuminated hearts and streets decorated with huge heart shaped helium balloons and, no couple will resist pausing under the adorned arches, along with several romantic photo call points set up around the town so they can mark the moment, hand in hand. Also, in the Santa María Church at 9.30, blessings will be given to those in love.
There will be different types of live romantic music including piano, jazz, soul and boleros dotted on stages outside the Church, Plaza Nueva, Puerta de la Ciudad, Plaza del Parterre and Plaza del Arbollón. The restaurants and bars are busy creating their own romantic menus as well as decorations especially for the occasion, with love and heart themed food and drinks, with maybe a few magic formulas thrown in.
It is set to be an unforgettable experience with lots of surprises that will have its high point as the church bells ring at midnight when everyone gathers under the stars at the Plaza Nueva, with fireworks lighting the sky, to join together in a show of eternal love and affection for “The Most Beautiful Kiss in the World” followed by dancing with Mojácar´s spectacular view as a backdrop.
