Christmas lighting installation begins in Alicante

After the delays of last year, the consistory begins with time the assembly of 780 arches and garlands in a hundred streets and squares.

The City Council of Alicante has started the installation of Christmas lights in the city centre, where you can already see some of the more than 780 arches and garlands that will give shine to about a hundred streets and squares. This year's assembly comes two months earlier than in 2019, when even the mayor had to apologize to the alicantinos.

The lights will be the Christmas scene that will set the starting point of this celebration with a decorative night lighting that, as explained in a statement the councillor of infrastructures, José Ramón González," will have for the first time with motifs and decorations giant box of gifts or Christmas balls that will be passable by people, and will be installed in the Plaza de la Montañeta and Rupert Chapi in front of the theatre".

For now, since the beginning of October you can see how the arches look in the streets of San Francisco, Castaños, Avenida de Alfonso El Sabio, Rafael Altamira or plaza del Ayuntamiento, and it is expected that the assembly work of the hundreds of arches progress throughout the month.

The mayor of infrastructures has announced that "the goal is to have everything ready and finished in the month of November to enjoy a very emotional and expected Christmas after these months of pandemic", and has said that "another of the novelties of this year is the installation in our emblematic esplanade of the traditional Christmas tree".

Less consumption
The lights feature a system of LED luminaires, which allows to reduce the costs and consumption of lighting, which will be maintained for more than a month to give brightness to the city. "There has been a significant budget increase of 36% in the contract, which is about 100,000 euros more annually, with which we improve the quality, originality and spectacular lighting in our parties in the streets, squares and most significant points", adds the councillor.
