Animal blessings during Arona fiesta
Tomorrow, Sunday, in Arona in the south of Tenerife, there will be a fiesta in honour of the patron saint San Antonio Abad. The patron saint of the animals will give his blessing to the domestic and farm animals and thus ensure health and strong offspring. The animals will be exhibited in the festival grounds. At about 10.30am, a traditional celebratory service will take place in the church of San Antonio Abad. The folklore group Parranda Chasnera will be providing background music.
