Christmas street decorations are taken seriously and make locals proud. National and international visitors are left in awe with the effort made to have the best decorations in exhibit.
This makes the Algarve a pleasure to visit at this time and gives true meaning to the expression: ‘Lighten up: it’s Christmas!’
Excellent weather and beautiful beaches during the day and pretty decorated streets at night!
In Portimão some 40 streets and squares have been decorated and, as with last year an impressive 25 metre Christmas tree can be appreciated in Alameda Square – Praça da República. The decorations remain in place until around the 7th January.
In the run up to Christmas many will enjoy Christmas Carols and Concerts whilst the young ones will be entertained with a temporary ice rink & ramp and artificial snow machines. There will also be a life-size nativity scene as well as a Father Christmas parade accompanied by plenty of musical entertainment!
Location: Alameda da Praça da República, Portimão
Update: On Saturday 6th December watch thousands of young Father Xmas and their parents at the Father Xmas Parade. From 3PM @ Alameda da Praça da República, Portimão. These will be accompanied by street entertainers & clowns, balloons, DJ and plenty fun musical sounds. Join the Xmas Party! All you need is a Xmas hat (provided)!
The parade will pass by the Praça 1º de Maio square where you will be able to enjoy the life-size nativity scene.
