One of the most popular Mallorca festivals is La Patrona in Pollença, which is celebrated on the day dedicated to the Mare de Deu dels Angels, August 2nd
This fiesta actually takes place over a whole week but on the 2nd August a huge mock battle takes over the whole town for the day between the Moorish pirates (baddies) and the Christians (goodies), followed by an epic fireworks display.
In the days leading up to this climatic event, the town is strung with white bunting from end to end. Pollenca’s main square is transformed into festival central with a gazebo of white bunting strung up in the centre and a stage set up surrounded by market vendors and festival food carts. Concerts, children's entertainment, sporting exhibitions, demonstrations, markets and parties fill the historic town. See the web link for the programme (normally available the week before the event).
