TAKING place this weekend we have the first Expo Torrevieja, a new Lifestyle Fair dedicated to enhancing your quality of life living on the Costas.
It takes place at the beautiful Salones Bahia Costa, almost adjacent to Torre del Moro in La Mata and features over sixty local businesses plus national and international services from the UK and Scandinavia.
It’s open on both days from 10.00am until 3.00pm and admission is free. Bring along your electric bill and you could be surprised at how much you can save over what you pay to Iberdrola plus you could win a year’s free electric.
Apymeco will also be there and you can pick up your free Discount Card, that’s good for around 200 shops and services in Torrevieja. You can also find out how you can support the Rock Against Cancer event and raise much needed funds for the AECC. Parking in free and available all around the local area.

If you have some old clothes you wish to be rid off and are looking for a good cause, then on Sunday from about 10.30am, you can drop them off on Torrevieja’s seafront as part of the World Day of Civil Protection, as the Town Council have organised a NGO Fair and “Solidary Day” next to the monument to Old Man of the Sea.
Local NGOs will be setting up tables to answer questons and take donations while the company EcoVegaBaja will collect used clothes and footwear, with the funds from this this collection going towards acquiring material for the Civil Protection Unit of Torrevieja.
There are other activities taking place such as a zumba workshop at 10:30am, at 11:30am an exhibition of search and rescue dogs, and many other events. More details on their Facebook page. The event breaks for lunch and returns in the evening again from 5.00pm with a new exhibition of search and rescue dogs and at 6:00pm. a parade of dogs looking for a new forever home, with the fair closing at 7.00pm. Lots to do on Sunday and if you time it right, you can visit Expo Torrevieja in the morning and then the NGO Fair in the evening, when it will be much easier to find parking downtown.
Next Friday the action moves to Cabo Roig with the St. Patrick’s Day Parade. Music and activities on the Cabo Roig strip start at around noon with music and entertainment from TKO with the dignitaries, classic cars, motorbikes, dozens of floats and St. Patrick himself getting ready for the off around 3.00pm. With around 10,000 people expected to be joining in the fun, this is not only the largest parade in Spain, but after Dublin the second largest in Europe and the sixth largest in the world. Come along and join in the fun. Have a green beer, or better yet a cold, tall, black stout, and wear something green.
