The municipality of La Oliva continues to grow to offer leisure alternatives to the hundreds of thousands of tourists who choose the north of Fuerteventura to enjoy their vacations, and this was announced today by the mayor of La Oliva, Isaí Blanco, and the Councilor for Tourism, Sandra González. They were accompanied by the president of the Cabildo, Marcial Morales, Blas Acosta, tourism counselor, and Antonio Hormiga, president of the employer's association.

It's odd that they can announce these Events so far in advance, yet people have been wanting to know for months when this year's Carnival is taking place - the dates were only announced last week!

You're absolutely right, Captain!

They want the tourists to be there as well as the locals. But to buy the flight tickets now (only a few weeks ahead of the Corralejo Carnival), the tourists have to spend much more Money if they want to attend. And spend less on the island to compensate for the tickets.

Same with the Kite Festival, announced in Summer every single year. Why? Everyone knows it takes place (usually) the second weekend in November but they wait months to release the info. It's much better to know about the Events this far ahead. Kite Festival 2019 info, BTW.

Let's hope they finally realised that people are not going to wait around (for any event) and book the holiday elsewhere. Fingers Crossed

Problem is, they can still change the dates. Classic examples being Windsurf World Cup and Arena Negra. Both changed dates after loads of people commited to come on holiday! Not good PR.
