Adeje Council is reminding people that they need permission from Costas or the Council to celebrate with bonfires
Playa Fañabé is getting ready to celebrate the shortest night of the year – June 23rd – when San Juan is celebrated, welcoming in the summer time with bonfires and traditions.
The Adeje department, under the direction of councillor, Ermitas Moreira García, and in partnership with Urb. Playa Fañabé S.A., the company who run this beach, is preparing the traditional bonfire and will burn a 5 metre sculpture created by Italian artist Luigi Stinga. The celebrations begin at 7.30pm and will include performances and live music and the bonfire will be lit after 10pm.
As well as this bonfire, and with the correct authorisation (which is from the Coastal department for beach bonfires), members of the public can also build their own bonfires. If the fires are not on beaches, permission must be sought from the Adeje council. The form you need to fill in can be downloaded online from the council page, www.adeje.es and presented at the citizens’ advice office. There is no cost for this service, and you must include where the fire is to be built, and include a copy of your personal documentation.
The procedure is to guarantee the public’s safety and the council urges people to respect this rule and take all the appropriate security measures to ensure that the evening is one that is enjoyed by all.
