The mayor of Vigo, Abel Caballero, returns to the charge with the lighting of christmas. A year ago, the video in which the mayor announced "christmas top of this planet," became viral after announcing the installation of 9 million led lights in the city and to ensure that Vigo would be the envy to the rulers in Tokyo, Paris or New York.
This morning, and with three months notice, the operators began to install the lighting in the streets of the city olívica. Knight did not miss the occasion to appear before the press and to invite, half-seriously, half-jokingly, the mayor of New York to go see it.
Vigo "for the best lighting that was never," said Knight in a statement to the media, in the area of Rosalía de Castro, where the company has undertaken the work. The numbers of lights are still higher than they were last year.
"we're Going to install a 10-million led lights, 2.700 arches , there will be 334 lit streets, lights in 465 trees, the giant tree of Porta do Sol will be higher, we will install the snowman and the gigantic box of gift, the ball-spaceship, and a large ferris wheel that measures more than 60 metres," he said.
To this are added other attractions like the flea markets, the ice rink, the village, christmas, and other ornaments, and all that will be on the 23rd of November at 20.30 hours. is "The radiance of the Vigo is going to be seen from all parts of Spain (...), and also from New York, London, Paris, Rome..." , proclaimed the mayor, who expects to exceed the 2 million visitors, according to the calculations of the city council, passed through the center of Vigo, in the last christmas campaign.
Abel Knight confirmed that the budget of this lighting is "a bit higher" than that of last year (when spending, only light, was something more than 800,000 euros), because it expands the areas adorned. " Going to be a few lights so exceptional that this time is going to call me the mayor of New York to me to tell me who comes to see them", joked, before heading, in English, an invitation to his counterpart of the north american city.Updated Date: 12 September 2019, 16:00
