Christmas arrives in Palma on Thursday November 28

Palma’s beautiful Christmas lights will be turned on in a lighting ceremony on Thursday 28th November in Plaza de la Reina in Palma.

[vc_row][vc_column][vc_single_image image=”1661″ img_size=”full” alignment=”center”][vc_column_text]The famous Christmas lights that illuminate Palma every year are due to be switched on on Thursday, November 28 at 7.30 pm with the official lighting ceremony taking place in Plaza de la Reina in Palma.

This year the City Council have spent over €900,000 on the lights this year in order to make all of the lights in Palma LED.

Other than the well-established lights on the Paseo del Borne and around Palma, there will also be lights on Carrer de Juan Gris, Carrer de General Riera, Son Roca, Galerías Los Geranios, Son Dameto and Son Cotoner this year.

235,580 metres of garlands have been hung across Palma and 941 trees and 200 palms have been decked with lights to make them more festive.

As well as the main ceremony in Plaza de la Reina, the countdown will also be happening in Plaza Joan Carles I on the front of the Casal Solleric and in Plaza Cort with projections on the front of the Ayuntamiento.

The lighting ceremony can get very crowded so we recommend that you get there with plenty of time and wrap up warm as it can go on for up to an hour.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column][/vc_column][/vc_row]
