Commerce Councillor, Maria Antònia Truyols, General Services Councillor, Carlos Grimalt, Toni Galmés and Sebastia Riera presented the fairy route, which runs from Avenida del Tren to Plaza Sant Jaume, sa Bassa, Plaza de la Constitució, Plaza Ramon Llull, Plaza del Palau to Paseo Antoni Maura.

There will also be a competition for the best showcase with 600 euros for the winner, 400 for second place and 200 for third.
