Orihuela Costa business group, ECO, have lived up to their promise to put the area on the map by organizing the first summer festival to be held on the Costa, and they have the all important backing of the town hall.
The idea, initiated by ECO, is to have a carnival style parade with a number of floats and plenty of revelers in fancy dress who will parade between the La Zenia roundabout and the beach before arriving at 9.00pm at the communal area behind Consum, La Zenia where the party will continue with music and dancing and, of course, fireworks. All proceeds from the event, which will span the weekend of 4/5th of July will be donated to the local La Zenia church and then distributed amongst charities.
Orihuela town hall stated that it looked forward to working with ECO over the coming weeks and confirmed its involvement by offering to organize the services such as, local police, ambulance etc, and arranging for power supplies and other resources to help insure that the festival is a success. ECO will be organizing the music, arranging bars and dealing with the many local businesses looking to be involved.
Only recently formed ECO, whose objectives are to promote businesses and generate interest in the area, has thought intelligently and realised that with the might of the town hall helping they can work together to get Orihuela Costa firmly on the map and create a popular event that will benefit many local traders. It is a wise move by both the town hall and ECO that in these tough times, they can work together to help promote the area.
Residents of Orihuela Costa are invited to join in the fun on the first weekend in July by dressing up as pirates and becoming part of the carnival. Anyone interested should contact 96 673 0056 or take a look at the ECO website, www.orihuela-costa.biz.
The same applies to any businesses that are looking to get involved in what is sure to be a popular and busy couple of days. Get in touch with ECO and find out more about how you can promote your business at the first summer festival to be held on the Orihuela Costa.
