ON Sunday, one more year of Europe Day was celebrated in Calvia, taking place, as last year, in the Paseo del Mar in Palmanova where more than 70 stall holders congregated from different countries offering all types of products and information. The day was warm and sunny, despite cloudy skies earlier in the week, as the giant street party got under way.
Mayor Carlos Delgado declared the Day officially open at 12.30pm. He was accompanied by the Balearic Minister for Immigration, Councillor Kate Mentinck, and the director of the European Centre. The event was held along the seafront at the Playa des Carregador beach, stretching from Port Royal to MacDonalds.
There were more than 70 stands with food and drink from many countries, along with craft stalls and ethnic products.
The day had various events such as live musical performances all day, bouncy castles and plenty of games for the children.
The official celebration of Europe Day takes place at Government headquarters, the Consolat de Mar, in the Paseo Sagrera at 5pm today.
This year the celebrations are special as it is 20 years since Spain joined the European Union.
