Veladilla del Carmen

Postby webmaster » Fri Jul 14, 2006 6:51 pm

This weekend (16th July) is a celebration of the Virgen del Carmen who is celebrated along the coast with each town having its own party to celebrate. In Benalmadena the procession is something that should be taken in and this year for the first time they have published an itinery :shock:

On Sunday 16th July 2006 there is a service at the church plaza in Bonanza Ave. at 19:30 then at 20:15 the procession leaves and progresses via Avda Bonanza, Calle Flamingo, Calle Los Almendros, Plaza Solymar, Avda Antonio Machada, Avda Alay, Avda Juan Sebastian Elcano arriving at the Puerta Marina and at 21:30 she will be sent on her cruise along the coast accompanied by a huge flotilla of assorted craft.

2009 itinerary:

Although something is going on somewhere in Benalmadena from the 12th to the 18th of July the Big day (or evening) is the 16th when at 19:30 hours, the image of The Virgin will be paraded through Benalmadena Costa. Carried shoulder high the virgin will take the following route from the "MAS" church by Bonanza square, Avenida Bonanza, Flamingo, Carril del Siroco, Antonio Machado, Alay, Juan Sebastian Elcano, and finally, to the yacht club, accompanied by the Banda de Música Nuestra Señora de la Paz of Malaga (band of bugles and drums).

At around 21:30, the Virgen del Carmen will be put aboard the boat "Torremolinos", Alonso Gallardo, which each year takes the procession out to sea. Dozens of boats accompany Virgen del Carmen who is also applauded by the thousands of faithful who line the shore. While the boats travel the coast from the Marina to somewhere about The Santa Ana beach, those remaining in the Marina will be presented with a glass of wine served by venenciadores, courtesy of the Delegation of Celebration, and will begin dancing with Orquesta Nuevo Día

Upon its return, around 22:30 pm the Virgin is received at the Yacht Club by a soprano and a tenor accompanied by saxophone and piano. This is followed by a spectacular firework display from the beach Malapesquera beach

And from midnight in the Puerta Marina there is a big band and dancing until dawn.
