We celebrate Canarian Day! 🌴

Thursday May 30th, 2019 0 By Marconfort Hotels

On May 30th, the Canarian Day is celebrated, a very important day among all the Canaries. And we want to tell you why this day is so special for them.

This day is a very special occasion and different from the rest because in the Canary Islands they are celebrating the identity, the culture and all those who form the islands. This festive is not limited only to people who are from the islands, it is to anyone who is residing in them and all those who are living elsewhere. On May 30th, in addition, it is commemorated the anniversary of the first session of the Parliament of the Canary Islands held in 1983 (36 years ago…).

Canarian Day at Marconfort Atlantic Gardens

Throughout the day there are various activities on all the islands that reflect the unique atmosphere of each of them. In our case, Marconfort Atlantic Gardens as every year celebrates and introduces to all its guests the traditions and culture of the Canary Islands. For this day, they will celebrate different activities throughout the day.

Also, in Yaiza there will be activities throughout the day. Performances, gastronomic tastings of typical products from the area and the Canary Islands, institutional events to commemorate this day and an exhibition of ¡Lucha Canaria’. Do you want to know what it is? The Canarian Wrestling (‘la Lucha Canaria`) is a typical sport of the islands where two people face and must unbalance the opponent until it touches the ground with any part of the body, with the exception of the soles of the feet. The origin of this sport comes from the aborigines fights of the islands. You can not miss that exhibition, ¡it’s something unique!
