Archive photo of the fiestas in Colonia Sant Jordi.
The town hall in Ses Salines has arranged for there to be a large police presence and wide security measures in place to cope with the fiestas in Colonia Sant Jordi. This operation is to come into effect today, although Saturday night is when the resort can anticipate the greatest influx of visitors and the most intense security operation. It is designed in particular to curb street drinking parties and to ensure compliance with the local bylaw on "co-existence". Anyone drinking alcohol in public places, says the council, can expect drink to be confiscated.
