Canary Day is Coming

Friday is Canary Day. It’s a big thing here, and the celebrations have started already.

On Wednesday evening they had bouncy castles in the port car park. This was shortly followed by a foam machine. The kids loved it. My son was so delighted that he dived in with all his clothes on. I’d have been seriously tempted to join in except that I had my expensive camera with me. So I had to stay upwind of the fun.

Tomorrow most schools will have a party for the second half of the morning. They’ll serve traditional food and play traditional folk music. Some will have Canarian sports. And the real celebration is still to come.
