tudela – From horseback riding to show with dancers and acrobats, between Christmas music and confetti. Tudela changed this year, given the health measures derived from the pandemic, the traditional Cavalcade that served to receive their Majesties from the East on their arrival in the city, for other 15-minute performances with which it was tried that the 4,400 children and girls from Tudela could see the Three Wise Men on the most special day of the year.
In total, 21 scheduled passes (15 minutes in length) were made, starting at 11:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. and continuing from 4:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. The organization gave a margin of 5 minutes between each of them to avoid crowds. Everything was prepared taking into account the number of children from 0 to 12 years old in Tudela and the maximum capacity allowed by law to carry out activities of these characteristics, which is 300 people.
The place chosen for the reception was the bullring where the little ones could enter with fathers, mothers and grandparents or grandmothers to enjoy live music, floats, four acrobatic dancers, who were hanging from a 7-meter-high structure , a giant screen that projected Christmas images and rotating colored lights, glitter, balloons and more surprises with the attendance of the three Magi. A white line separated the public from the performances, while Civil Protection tried to keep the distances between the public.
The assistants had to stay in the same place during the 15 minutes, without moving and it was forbidden to eat or drink or remove the mask at any time.
The approximate budget of the City Council to organize all the activities that have been held during these days of this very different Christmas has been almost 38,000 euros.
