If you’ve ever been away and got the feeling from your destination that you’d just missed out on a cultural moment, or wished you’d caught its people in the prime of their joy and hospitality then a stay on Lanzarote during ‘Canary Islands day’ will capture all of this for you.
The 30th May celebrates the first session of the Canary Islands Parliament in 1983, and the spirit of freedom and unity born on that day spreads throughout the island amongst various festivals and events that take place in its main resorts.
These events include street parties with traditional food for you to sample, extravagant costumes that visitors are encouraged to dress up in, and music to lift your spirits throughout the festival and keep you dancing though the throngs of people eager to celebrate.
Special offers for the Bank Holiday weekend
This is a bank holiday weekend with events starting on the 27th of May, culminating in a national bank holiday on the 31st where you can find lots of great offers on water sports, restaurants and water parks across the island.
Only last year, the Aquapark at Costa Teguise offered a 2 for 1 price on entry that day with similar offers expected this year.
The town of Haria often plans a live concert, ‘Haria Con Chile’ along with its Saturday market in its main plaza.
