MIJAS’S Council is pulling out all the stops ahead of this year’s Las Lagunas Feria from 28 June to 2 July.
Municipal workers have been sprucing up the areas bordering the Cortijo Don Elias, where the event is due to take place. Among the improvements are concreting of tracks, the installation of additional car parking and general maintenance work.
The Councillor for Operational Services, Jose Carlos Martin, has visited the works being carried out, explaining, “as is the case every year, municipal workers are undertaking conservation and maintenance work in the fairground area so that it is in the best condition for the various local parties we have planned. We currently have around 20 workers dedicated to this project.”
He added a plot of land next to the fairground was also having its earth broken down and compacted to leave it in better condition for being used.
The works have been going on for around two weeks and will carry on right up until the event’s start when all the final details will be finished off. The project will also involve the Department for Parks and Gardens, Ferias and Energy Efficiency.
