Palma.—Tens of thousands of revelers are going to flock to the capital on Thursday for a night of music, dancing and bbqs across the city centre and to make life easier, extra trains are being laid on throughout the night.

The SFM Majorcan Railway Company announced yesterday that trains will be running between Palma to Sa Pobla from 22.40 until 06.16, and between Palma and Manacor from 23.15 to 05.30.

The five extra trains will run every hour and will stop at every station on the way in order to make it easier for people from outlying districts to get in and out of the city.

SFM will also have extra personnel and security guards on duty to ensure the very maximum of safety for revelers. But, the big question every year is what is the weather going to be like. On occasions, the event has been a complete wash out but this year, in which the city council has extended the celebrations by an extra day, the forecast is looking good for those planning on going out.

No rain
The head of the Balearic Met. office Agusti Jansa, said yesterday that no rain is forecast but it will be a bit nippy.
He said that Thursday night will be a “good night” weather wise although it could be a bit windy in the West.
Friday, which is a Bank Holiday in Palma as the festivities continue, will also remain dry but the odd shower can be expected on Saturday.
But, no major changes in the weather are forecast for the time being with day time highs of around 14ºC and lows of around 8ºC over night in Palma.
So, if you are going out, wrap up, leave the umbrellas at home and have fun.
