The 17th annual crafts fair gets underway today, when the official opening ceremony will take place at the cloisters. The adjacent streets will be taken up by the seventh traders fair, while in the Via Pollentia, there will be an exhibition of local products, the environment and plants and garden equipement. In the evening, an exhibition in tribute to Miquel Salas will be opened at the Municipal Museum at 9pm, and at 10pm in the Plaça dels Seglars there will be a concert of ethnic music by the groups Burn Out and Calenda Maia, who won the Art Jove 2000 competition for ethnic music. Tomorrow, there will be a livestock show in the Calle Bartomeu Aloy, organised by the local farmers with the collaboration of the Pollensa town council. The local authorities will pay their visit to the fair at 11am, although this does not usually interfere with the general activities. The craft fair will be officially closed at 10pm on Monday. Other events today and tomorrow include a playmobile, sponsored by Colonya Caixa Pollença, which will function from 11am to 2pm and from 4 to 8pm. There will also be an exhibition of model ships and an exhibition of photographs of the Balearics by Gomis, Hausman, Henri and von Kaskel. It is sponsored by La Caixa. Mayor Francisca Ramon issued an invitation to everyone on the island to visit the craft fair, which she said is one of the most important on the island. She is keeping her fingers crossed that the weather will stay fine.
