Children´s entertainment will mean a range of workshops and activities are on offer between 10.30 and 13.00 in the Plaza Canaria, the largest square in the town. Between 11.00 and 12.00 a typical folklore group will play traditional Canarian music in the Plaza de la Constitucion, in front of the church of Nuestra Señora de Guadalupe. The birds of prey and snake show is timetabled for 12.00 in the Plaza Canaria.
