Festival of the Standard in Palma on New Year's Eve.
Celebrations for the Festival of the Standard last year.
Palma mayor Antoni Noguera has attacked Ciudadanos and described the party as being "anti-Majorcaness".
New Year's Eve parties - from Alcudia to Vilafranca. Not everywhere has one. The biggest is obviously in Palma. The Festival of the Standard in Palma to celebrate the arrival of King Jaume I and his forces in Madina Mayurqa on 31 December, 1229. Said to be the oldest national festival in Europe.
The bells will be ringing out across the island at midnight on New Year's Eve, and there will be parties going on into the small hours (listed here is a selection). It is also the Festival of the Standard in Palma to mark the day - 31 December, 1229 - when King Jaume I entered the city and brought an end to Muslim dominance of the island. This is also celebrated elsewhere, notably Inca and Sineu earlier in the week. Family shows at the auditoriums in Palma and Manacor plus four days of family entertainment at Galatzo in Santa Ponsa (Tuesday to Friday).
