Summer Beach Party
Over the past few years, an evening beach party has been held at the end of July, or beginning of August, on a Saturday night.
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.
It starts at 9pm and ends at 5am. In 2016 there was a firework display too. The event attracts about 5,000 people.

Friday will feature classic hits performed by tribute acts and bands.
Saturday will feature a high energy mix of musicians, groups and DJ's, with music and dancing continuing well into the early hours.
