Yesterday's event marked the halfway mark of El Ejido's patron saint celebrations in honor of San Isidro. Three days of intense fun in the sun, music, and joy on the streets.
This is why there are so many people who fill the fairgrounds every day with parties. It shows the Ejido people's desire to have fun and celebrate.
Yesterday's participation was significantly higher than the first day of Midday Fair, which saw moderate participation. By the time the sun set, booths were crowded.
At six in the afternoon, the fairground opened again. It was a day when the wind made an appearance but it weakened throughout the afternoon which allowed for the installation of the jacks to proceed without any problems.
The fair didn't really come to life until the sun set because of the heat.
With the appearance of Taxi, the pop rock band Taxi, the municipal park once again attracted thousands of people.
The second day of the XXIV Pyrotechnics Festival, in partnership with Turis Pyrotechnics was a more pleasant experience than Thursday's. It featured beautiful figures and a lot of energy.
Francisco Gongora (the mayor of El Ejido) recalled that the San Isidro celebrations have become a hallmark of El Ejido. He said that they are a place for fun, coexistence and the participation of citizens as well as a space where customs, beliefs, cultural and religious expressions can be displayed.
The fairgrounds are now easier to access for ejido residents this year, thanks to the huge number of parking spaces that have been created, paved, and arranged by signage. The City Council is currently working to create an attached car park that has 400 spaces. One part of this parking lot is already operational for these holidays. Two additional car parks are being added between Paseo de las Lomas street and Jesus de Percebal street, on two vacant lots. Part of the Ejido Centro project to convert vacant lots into car parks
