Estepona presents the seventh edition of ‘Estepona lives its streets’, an event that will offer thirty free cultural and leisure activities aimed at people of all ages. The event, which this year will take place from March 29 to 31, was established with the aim of publicizing the great renovation that has taken place in the old town of Estepona, as explained by the councillor of the Sociocultural and Services department, Blas Ruzafa. In addition the event will generate an important social, cultural, commercial and leisure activity before Holy Week, which will have a positive impact on businesses and establishments dedicated to leisure and catering.

Regarding the programme that has been compiled, the mayor has described this edition as the “most extraordinary to date” due to the increase in the number of activities, the novelty of some proposals and the diversity of events

Among the new events, Ruzafa has revealed that this year locals and visitors will have the opportunity to climb three aerostatic balloons that will be located on the beach of La Rada. This activity will take place on Sunday, March 31, from 10 am to 12 noon. Those interested in riding in some of these balloons can get their ticket by scanning the QR code found in the brochures that the Town Council is distributing with the complete programme of ‘Estepona lives its streets’

Another of the most original proposals of this edition will be the projection, for the first time in Estepona, of a video mapping that will recreate the fantastic story of Peter Pan. This artistic technique consists of unfolding on facades moving images with music and sound, the spectators will be able to enjoy a three-dimensional animation show that will include them. Video mapping can be seen in the Plaza Reloj on Saturday 30 and Sunday 31 at 8 pm, 8.30 pm, 9 pm and 9.30 pm. The duration of each pass will be 15 minutes

Another of the performances that will raise the most interest will be a concert offered by the group ‘Siempre Así’ in the ‘Diario ABC’ square, at 10 pm on Saturday 30. The group, which has sold more than one million records in Spain and Latin America, will perform such popular hits as ‘Siempre Así’, ‘If Men Have Made It To The Moon’ or the flamenco version they made of the legendary song ‘My Way’ by Frank Sinatra
