Palma's big BBQ night

200 BBQs for San Sebastian

Tonight's the night. It's the eve of San Sebastian day, the big fiesta when thousands and thousands of peole take to the streets and plazas of Palma to eat, drink, dance, listen to live music and generally have a good time. Now, as we mentioned in our recent article about the whole couple of weeks of fiesta, the big night is marked by lots of BBQing and here are the stats.

The council are distributing no less than 200 large BBQs and over 17 tonnes of firewood to fuel them around the city. Amongst these there'll be 70 situated in the 8 main squares used for live entertainment where anyone attending can take along steaks, burgers, sausages, chicken or whatever and cook their own food on the grill. If you're vegetarian or vegan, fear not, because 11 of the BBQs have been set aside for your use and no meat shall touch them!

Naturally, because it's a big night with lots of people and perhaps some alcohol, the council have also drafted in lots of extra police, firemen and civil protection volunteers to help out with safety aspects of the party.
