For dance lovers, the “Burbujas de Papel” (Paper Bubbles), show will take place on the 12th at 7pm in the Multi-Uses Centre.
“Burbujas de Papel”, from the Múcab Dans company, tells the story of a trumpet player who loves bubbles and round houses. Driven by his passion, he arrives at Bombalia, where he will live and meet many characters.
On the 27th of October, organised by the el Jalí AMPA parents’ association, in collaboration with Mojácar Council, pupils from the Bartolomé Flores Public School will celebrate their terrifying “Halloween Fiesta”.
From 6-9pm, the Multi-Uses Centre will bring together the scariest beings from beyond, sharing games, sweets and excitement.
Two important sports events mark the month of October. On the 15th of October the 38th Mojácar Popular Race will take place. At 10 in the morning, the complete category will start from Plaza Nueva and at 10.30am the children’s category.
La “Macenas MTB 2023” MTB cycle race will be held on the 29th of October. With the starting point from the Macenas Mediterranean Resort complex, the short route covers 21kms, with 531m elevation, and the long route, 42.4kms and 1,443 elevation.
November will arrive full of theatre performances. A month in Mojácar traditionally dedicated to the performing arts, every Friday in the Multi-Uses Centre different companies will stage stories for all audiences.
It is worth highlighting the 25th of November when the very youngest will have a special family party. The magic of Disney from 11.30am in Mojácar Pueblo will fill the streets and squares when the old town receives all the characters from the famous animation factory. The magical procession will be complemented by parades, games, children’s workshops, fancy dress, and a song contest, and to recharge batteries, a free paella for all those coming along, among many more surprises.
