New Christmas Lights
I had a drive around Caleta this evening and I was surprised to see the excellent Christmas street lights. They are the best I've seen in 16 years of living here. The Ayuntamiento must have had a big budget as all the lights are new.
There are lights all along the street between the Castillo roundabout and the Fuente roundabout; in the plaza, along the main road and in front of the Barcelo Hotel. There are also lights going up the hill.
There is a large illuminated Xmas bear in the plaza and another on the sea front near the Frasquita Restaurant. There's a large illuminated tree shape in the plaza.
There's also illuminated reindeers and trees on the grass between the Esmeralda apartments and the Cultural Center.
We commented on this and thought it all looked great. The Christmas bears were especially popular with people. We had never been so close to Christmas but we were equally impressed with the hotels and businesses who had all made an effort. Well done all and hope all your efforts are rewarded with increased business and prosperity.
Looking forward to seeing the lights
