On the Friday 10 and Saturday 11 July the town of Casares will become a mecca for lovers of the theatre and performing arts.
Over the two days various corners of the historic town centre will be turned into stages with performances of theatre, dance, acrobatics, living statues, and parades.
Completing the programme of activities will be an arts and crafts market in the streets between the town’s two main squares, Paseo de la Carrera and the Plaza de España.
The section of beach on Casares Costa, Playa de la Sal, which had been allocated for the use of dog owners and their pets has been closed for this purpose from June 1 to September 30.
The Casares Beach Department has been forced to ban dogs from all its beaches thanks to a directive from the Environment Ministry which has indicated that it is incompatible to have dogs and bathers sharing the same beach.
Casares has been a pioneer in providing a beach for dogs, and has stressed that the users have show great responsibility in controlling their pets and cleaning up after them.
This ban applies to all coastal municipalities and will be reviewed in September.
