Summer Beach Party
Over the past few years, an evening beach party has been held at the end of July, or beginning of August.
The event has got bigger each year. It is a free event with bands and singers, singing mainly songs in English, appearing on the stage. The event is organised by the Ayuntamiento de Antigua. Mobile kiosks sell a range of food and drink.
