Fiesta... fiesta... Spanish Sunday in Warsaw - 7.06.2009

The event actually starts on Saturday evening with the Holy Mass, at 6 p.m. (The Holy Trinity Church, Solec Str.), followed by the play based on the legend about Jesus statue arrival (later the same evening). On Sunday morning - another Mass and the procession around Solec.

And the annual fiesta starts at 2 p.m. on Sunday :-) There will be a chance to see the students of two flamenco schools from Warsaw (Studio Flamenco and Triana), two professional groups (Corazon Flamenco and Los Payos). The very special guest this year is a group from Seville - Arenales (they will perform at 7 p.m.)

Where? The square in front of the Holy Trinity Church, Warsaw, 61 Solec Street, see the map
