THERE was a party atmosphere in Palma Nova on Sunday as hundreds of people came together to celebrate Europe Day.
There was live music, attractions for children, dancing and food and drink from across Europe. A total of 68 stands had been set-up along the promenade with tourists joining residents to toast Europe.

Calvia tourism councillor, Kate Mentink said “This has been a most successful event and we will hold it again in Palma Nova next year.” Mentink was joined by the Director General for Tourism Promotion, Eduardo Gamero, and other officials from the Calvia council.

But it wasn't just about Europe. “The rest of the world” also joined in with various South American countries adding their own style and culture to the big day.

Meanwhile in Palma, the leader of the Balearic government, Jaume Matas underlined the importance of Europe at a prize giving ceremony at the Palau March in Palma.

Gabriele Kunze, a journalist on our German sister newspaper Mallorca Magazin, was named European of the year. She was presented with her prize by Matas.

All in all it was certainly a Europe Day to remember.
