A week ago you announced that we would be told where the Fiesta would take place "In a few days".
Today you tell us that you will announce where the Fiesta will take place "In a few days"
If the mayor hasn't told you where it will be held, Why not just say "I will tell you as soon as I am told" that way you will not be the fall guy, You can tell us who is running the show and we know who to blame.
(OR to use a saying that you once meant to use , Don't blame the Monkey Blame the Organ Grinder)

Hi Alan where do you think the Fiesta will be my personal thoughts are
Up on the Strip even money
Consum area1/5
Supa valu area 1/5

Personally I feel the only safe place at the moment is Consum. So I personally hope sanity comes into play.
But sanity doesn't often appear in the minds of people who have control. Therefore to appease a couple of Bars, the Strip comes into play, if that is the winner, I feel the Urb. may be the loser,as the Bars are far fewer so possibly prices may rise, and no way can it entertain the public only a few hundred will be seated in direct line of the stage. Most people at bars will be able to hear and not see. (and we can do that many nights during the Summer.(joke). Supa valu only a few bars, just not enough room for the amount of people who have grown in total each year as the Fiesta has got better and better. Admittedly the place with the best potential would be the market area, but although big enough area ,bars and eateries would have to hire in marquees etc. And I don't like the idea of being searched for contraband Alcohol and food , Because the favored Bar has soul control to supply to the public at twice the normal Urb Bar rate.
So I think if the Mayor, plays it as he hints, and it goes to the least helped area, then Supa Valu area would win, But I think we know that if common sense goes out the window then the Strip will get it, and if common sense prevails I will be Dad Dancing at the Consum area again this year.
I am thinking of the worst , But hoping for the best.

Alan sound reasoning but what about all the complaints about noise from the consum area and do you not think that the consum area have had it too good for the last 4 years how about some of the other bars get a chance ,but do agree that the market would be the best place but the bar owners just want everything on there door step and no work.If it was in the market they would have to set up an apply for a outside bar and employ more staff just my thoughts

Is the fiesta not best held in a place where the thoughts of the residents come first and not the businesses.

In theory, Yes let the Residents decide, but tell us how. Do we hold a ballot,? do we officially vote, ?do we count the comments of what people say on forums.? Whichever way you choose, it
will not give a true result.
We have voted in a Council to run San Fulgencio, It is up to them to find what they consider best. Unfortunately I believe that what they may believe is best, is not what I believe is best. But Like most other people on the Urb, I have a choice to go or not to go, to find somewhere else to be on just sit on my terrace and listen. Whichever way it goes, I want it to be successful and I want the Council , to be praised for it. If it is not successful or the health and safety aspect comes into play, I want the Council to know that we hold them responsible. Hopefully they will be able to learn this year and by doing so create even better Fiestas in the following three years.
