The Mayor said that a great deal of preparation has gone into the planning of the annual fair, an occasion he said, on which tradition meets the modern day through a wide programme of events and entertainment.
Torres said that the Farmers Market at which stallholders wear folk costume remains an important feature of the fair again this year, commanding 200 stands in the centre. A novelty this year, said Citizen Participation Councillor José Pastor is that the Farmers Market will be decorated with 5'000 paper siurells, ancient folkloric figures which have come to symbolise Majorca. The siurells have been contributed by all the infant and primary schools in Inca.
Mayor Torres said that although the Majorcan Railway Services (SFM) are striking on 14th and 15th November, a special coach service is to be provided and extra car parking is to be permitted on the old Palma road from the Binissalem roundabout as far as the Llubí roundabout.
Torres said that he had spoken with the Central Government delegate in the Balearics to ask for extra security cover during the fair.
