Tourists Enjoy Adeje Romería

Adeje said Adios to the locals Fiestas yesterday with a colourful Romería enjoyed by thousands who lined the main street to see the floats and agricultural carriages pass by with hundreds of Adejeros and visiting participants in traditional dress.
Adeje mayor José Miguel Rodríguez Fraga said it was a “splendid event with high levels of participation and a lot of foreign visitors and tourists which we value greatly as we welcome their participation”. He added, “this is a delightful fiesta and a day which is full of giving by the Adeje community, displaying Canarian hospitality at its best, sharing the produce of the land with everyone”.
The mayor of the Galician town of Riveira, which is twinned with Adeje, who was an invited guest to the event, said he was very pleased to be here taking part in a festival that was emblematic of the culture and traditions of the area, and was proud to take part in traditional Canarian attire.
The traditional parade of agricultural floats attended by different local groups, who offered passers by samples of local food and drink ended at the Santa Ursula church where there were musical and dance homage to the Virgen de la Encarnación, Santa Úrsula and San Sebastián.
A fitting end to a very successful and eventual two weeks of celebrating what is both traditional and modern about Adeje.
