The Local Government promotes a workshop of decoration of little octopuses with the intention of filling the village with them

These days began to travel a "traveling little octopus" and for day 7  is scheduled  the already traditional balloon twisting workshop


The Councillor of Culture of Mugardos, Lola González, reported on some activities linked to the upcoming Octopus Festival and designed to encourage the participation and involvement of all citizens in the event. Thus, on the social networks of Concello de Mugardos and the Octopus Festival, you can follow the journey of a "Pulpito viajero" ("Small Octopus Traveler") who has been touring different corners of the Mugardese village for a few days.

Its first stop was at the Caldoval Interpretation Centre and until the 14th, the date of the gastronomic festival, he will continue to travel. The proposal is to guess where the octopus is in each of the images that, day in day out, will be hung on the Octopus Festival Facebook and the City Hall, as well as on the Mugardos Tourism Instagram.

In addition to energizing social networks, the local government wants to involve the citizenry in order to give an image of celebration and exaltation of the octopus, the product that offers more popularity to Mugardos. So, next Friday, day 29, there will be a workshop to decorate little octopuses to which neighbors of all ages from six years can sign up. The participants will receive a model of an octopus and the proposal will be to paint or decorate it with some motif referring to each house or family, then hang them from the windows or on the facades. The appointment will be at the Town Hall square, from 11.00 am and interested persons can register at the Municipal Library. In case of rain, the activity will be transferred to the Social Place for Seniors. The idea, commented Councillor Lola González, "is to fill Mugardos with little octopuses in order to set up the village for the July 14 festival".

Along with these two innovative activities, the City Council once again organizes the traditional balloon flexia workshop, in which children learn how to make their own balloons. The appointment will be on July 7, in two shifts, from 10.30 to 12.00 and from 12.00 to 13.30 hours, at the Social Place for Seniors. There will be a maximum of 60 places in total, for boys and girls from 6 to 12 years old, and registration is made at the Municipal Library.
