The Orihuela Department of Fiestas has scheduled the Orihuela Costa Three Kings parade on five th The month of january 2020, for 12: 00 midday, unlike previous years, when it offers traditionally been held during the earlier evening, while the Orihuela City march will remain at its usual moments of 6. 45pm.
The particular change of time was carried out simply by Councillor Rocamora who said that the lady wants attract more people to the big event, and thereby increase the number of participants from previous years.
However the change was seemingly produced without any consultation with coastal inhabitants and following details of it’ ersus publication an urgent meeting with the particular councillor was requested by an unsatisfied FAOC Board and its satellite neighborhood associations.
An FAOC spokesperson told the Leader that the achievement of the Three Kings cavalcade must not be measured by the number of people in presence, but by the quality of the march, currently an issue that many residents straight relate to the inadequate budget allotted by the City Council to the seaside parade.
He declared that “ We believe that the heart and soul of this parade is to foster the particular illusion of children, so that, as soon as it really is over, they can go to their houses to sleep and wait for the particular gifts, which, it seems to all of us, would be quite a difficult thing to do with all the newly established morning schedule. Certainly during the morning many parents plus mothers will be at work, so the presence will be even less. ”
The change in time was even a surprise to inhabitants of Orihuela City one of which said “ I am from the downtown area Orihuela, and I assure you that the Cavalcade in the morning in the town center would never even be considered. ”
Following conversations between FAOC and the councillor Ms. Rocamora has said that she will try to rearrange the particular schedule so that the parade is once more held in the early evening yet unfortunately, it might be too late to change as the change does not depend on the girl will but on the conditions of the written contract.
Therefore it would seem that this year, Ms. Rocamora, the letters of the parents along with the children of the Orihuela Costa which are addressed to the Magi will only request one thing: “ That the Kings’ march be celebrated, as in the rest of The country, on the 5th but in the afternoon”
