Partying Catalan style

We at the Hotel Principal are very excited about July 18. Our local neighbourhood party, the Raval Festa Major of the Association of Commercial of Sant Pau and Junta de Comerc, sponsored by our business association, will be held just down the street.

Barcelona's many neighbourhood block parties help make our city the warm place it is, both for those of us who live here and those who visit us.There will be everything you need for a great neighbourhood block party: music, food, sparkling wine.

The idea of this festival is to promote dialog between the various groups of our neighbourhood and of course to have a good time. In the morning there will be a Mostra de Puntaires (webers of bobbin lace).In the afternoon cava and good vibrations.

Later a jazz group named The Piano Has Been Drinking and the Aleph Aguilar trio an Afro-Venezuelan jazz fusion trio will perform.There will also be traditional Arabic dance and much, much more.

And you will be doing some good.It is co-sponsored by Doctors without Borders w ho are working to eradicate child malnutrition and the Fundacio Romeo, a local theatre group promoting popular culture.

This is one of the eventos of the Raval Festa Major, which will be celebrated from 16 to 19 July. If you are in Barcelona these days, come join us and help us to celebrate as only the locals can; it should be great fun.
