Mallorca is one such destination that delights tourists throughout the year with its perfect climate, scenery and glowing local hospitality.
Festivals and celebrations form a large part of Mallorca’s heritage, and visitors to the Balearic Island at any time of the year are fortunate enough to have the opportunity to experience these events all year round. Annual celebrations that bring both visitors and locals together, such as harvest festivals and religious celebrations, take place not only in the larger towns but in many of the smaller resorts and are a joy to experience during a Villa Holiday
Staying in one of the many Villas in Majorca will give you the chance to discover traditional festivals such as the Fiesta La Patrona in Pollensa that takes place every August, the whole town re-enacts a historical clash between local folklore legends and invading pirates in 1550. Visitors and locals from across the Balearics flock to the festival to take part.
Another very unique event that takes place each year is the Releasing of the Ducks festival in the popular resort of Can Picafort. Visitors and locals compete against each other to catch as many floating plastic ducks as they can in the town’s harbour. With many prizes up for grabs and a whole host of entertainment ranging from Music and dance, it is a great way to relax and enjoy a day out.
