The actors were the same as those taking part in the promotional video which the council had launched to advertise the fair.
Sixty streets in Inca will be cut off to make way for the 500 stalls, exhibition stands and workshops which will spread through no less than 8 kilometres; 200 of these will be part of the Farmers' Market where those behind the counters dress up in traditional Majorcan folk costume.
The council is expecting in the region of a quarter of a million people to visit the fair and recommends the public use the free train services to get to Inca rather than attempting to bring a car. Mayor Rafel Torres said that the budget for the Dijous Bo fair has been cut by 40% this year but gave assurances that the quality of services and entertainment will not be affected.
No short cuts will be made on health and safety measures which will include two first aid stations in Plaza del Mercat and Plaza Llibertat.
