San Fulgencio town hall has announced the opening of the period for submitting applications for the election procedure for their festival queens, something which has not happened recently because of the Covid pandemic.

The councillor for festivities, Josefa Sampere, made the announcement this week, saying that “we are very happy to be able to resume this very special tradition for the young people of our town after three years, a sign that we are gradually returning to normal”.

From Tuesday 1 February to Thursday 31 March, all those interested in participating may submit their candidacy through the Town Hall Register. “For inclusion in the procedure, the order of registration will be taken into account rigorously, and no more applications will be accepted once the quotas are covered,” said the councillor.

The maximum number of girls chosen to qualify for child queen will be five, with an age between 8 and 10 years. Likewise, the junior queen and her ladies will be chosen from among the first three young people who register, and who must be between 15 and 20 years old.

The election will be made public on Friday 22 April, where the mayor of San Fulgencio, José Sampere, will announce the news to those elected. “We will welcome these young women as they deserve, who will be the representatives of all the residents of San Fulgencio in the festive acts that take place throughout the year, but especially in the patron saint festivities of the month of October in honour to the Virgen del Remedio”, stated the councillor.
