The mayor of Pamplona proposes lengthen the Sanfermines 2022

Two years without Chupinazo, two years without enclosures and two years without the poor of me. The pandemic of the Coronavirus has taken many things and has also left many others, one of them the Sanfermines. If everything continues as so far in 2022 you will see again the spectacular careers of the waiters and the Pamplona Square to overflow with red scarves and white outfit.

But the sanfermines may also change. As proposed by the Mayor of Pamplona, Enrique Maya, the Sanfermines 2022 could be extended and rather than July 14 with the traditional poor of me, extend the parties three days, until July 17.

"A friend told me that the 14th of July falls on Friday, I think I remember, and he told me, could you stretch a little the days of parties? And I said, because everything will be discussed. It does not sound bad," he says. Enrique Maya. Actually on July 14, Thursday, but even so, the Regidor keeps his hand open to lengthen the celebrations "with some major Taurine Fair and some other event," says the mayor, according to the newspaper of Navarra.

Maya has also remembered the "deep sadness, the Batacazo and the very hard time" that was announced the last spring the suspension of the Sanfermines of 2021 again by the pandemic of the Coronavirus. Now, the mayor confesses to feel "excited" before the recovery of parties in 2022, a fact that he gives "almost for sure".

The mayor has defended that "economically" this "could be interesting". "It's a proposal that we have to discuss, but it seems interesting to me to be analyzed at least," he said.

As explained, "we are still receiving suggestions through the website and has not been discussed, but I think it's time." "For my part, it would support it," she has asserted, to indicate that she does not know what the rest of the municipal groups think. "This is part of an interview that made me yesterday and I commented as an option that takes my head and that I have commented with my closest environment," she said.

If the Pamplona mayor proposal is finally coming forward, the Pamplonicas will be able to enjoy their party from July 7 until July 17. A fact that can be surprising, but that it is not novel since until the 1960s the Sanfermines lasted until July 20.

The City Council of Pamplona has opened a mailbox for suggestions so that citizenship raises proposals for the next sanfemines. Everyone who wishes can write to email sanfermin22@pamplona.es.
