Updated 2 May: It’s the beginning of summer for many now that we’re in May so how better to celebrate the weekend than with the world-famous Los Realejos fireworks tomorrow Friday, and a Craft Beer Festival in Puertito de Güímar on Saturday? Also this weekend there is the Trail Run Almendros y Volcanes de Santiago del Teide and the now well-established XVII Feria del Libro de Adeje 2019 with its hugely-popular discussion session with local English-language authors. Some might also find time to do their bit for the environment on Saturday too with a Beach clean-up at Playa del Socorro, Güímar. Finally, on Sunday, locals and visitors will be joining the Rogativa de la Virgen de la Encarnación pilgrimage in Adeje, the procession from the top of Adeje to La Caleta to honour an ancient promise. Whatever you’re doing this first real weekend of summer 2019, I hope you have a lovely time!
