Mass for the Virgin of Fatima, La Punta
Last night I went to the fiesta for The Virgin of Fatima in La Punta, in the municipality of Tijarafe. Things didn’t go according to plan (see my personal blog, but I had a good time.
La Punta is just a hamlet. Like most small villages, the main annual fiesta is the saint’s day of the village’s patron saint. Practically all such fiestas include a special mass and a procession with the statue of the saint, and so did this one.
Most fiestas include something else, which varies from village to village. Tijarafe town all told me that there wasn’t anything else at La Punta, but they had a living picture, which someone gave a short speech in honour of the Virgin.
And then we had fireworks. Rather good ones in my opinion, considering the size of the place.
The Dance Floor
And the dance was just getting started as I left. I had to get up this morning. Since they have today off work they probably partied until 2 am at least.
