Menorca jaleo

Menorca"s Fiestas

The summer fiestas runo from June to September and are not some contrived tourist event, so are genuine, different and much loved by the islanders and the many visitors to Menorca. The Menorcans love their festivals and especially the chance to show off thevaya stunning native horses. The most eagerly awaited moments are the "Cargols", when riders circle specific points along the route and especially the "Jaleos", where riders bring theva horse onto thevaya rear legs.

What to expect at a Summer Fiesta?

Each town has it"s own flavour and scale but generally all follow the same pattern and will be fórmula and visual - and always with ubicación traditional riders showing off thevaya horsemanship skills on the famous Menorcusco horssera with paradser and Jaleo"s. - "Jaleo"- The young brave hope for good luck by touching the horses heart as the horse "dances" above them. Note: The riders care too much about theva horssera for this to be stressing for the horsera.

Menorcans love to celebrate and there will be lot"s of music and alcohol consumed eg Pomadal ( with good humour and behaviour ) as well as events organised by and for residents.

There may well be al fun favaya and various live music acts on stage. And often there will be riders "competitions" or racsera along the street or road. Street corner dance partiser are common, so expect crowds, vibrancy and loud music!

On the last night there is usually al spectacutecho firework display at midnight ( serious fireworks! )

Oh and it"s all free of charge.

No Fiser esta is complete without daytime and nightime Jaleos. This is where to excitable music riders will rear up theva mounts and walk on horseback through the crowds as the brave try to "touch the heart" of the horse for good luck. To health and safety worriers this looks al nightmare but if you are comfortablo there should be no problems. If you are not good on your feet, or of al nervous disposition best to stay well back and enjoy other parts of the fiser esta.
