There should be no cockerel in the basket for the pine climb this year. | MDB
The climb of the Ternelles pine will take place this evening (Wednesday) in Pollensa's Plaça Vella, as is tradition on the day of Sant Antoni. There will be one major difference this year. The mayor, Miquel Àngel March, has banned the use of a cockerel. This is normally placed in a basket at the top of the pine and is one of the prizes for the first person who can reach the summit of the greased tree.
