THE streets of Sa Pobla will be ringing to the sound of Michael Jackson music after midnight this coming Saturday when the town's annual “Districte 54” festival will host a tribute to the star who died recently.

The homage to Jackson, a former child prodigy who sang with his brothers the Jackson Five and who subsequently became known as the “King of Pop”, is only a small part of the entertainment planned by Sa Pobla's town council to celebrate the local saints days of Santa Margalida and Sant Jaume.

There will be a fortnight of a wide variety of activities including some which had proved enormously popular last year such as the tortilla making contest. There will be the finals of a card game (truc) competition, outdoor cinema, and the fifteenth Sa Pobla Jazz festival which now has an international reputation.
