By Joe Wick­man Va­len­cia’s Ate­neo Mer­can­til venue is cur­rently host­ing an ex­hi­bi­tion show­cas­ing over 10,000 pieces of Play­mo­bil.

The minia­ture land­scape, peo­ple and an­i­mals are di­vided into five the­matic ar­eas (Fan­tasy World, Lu­nar Bases, The Bat­tle of Get­tys­burg, Alpine Set­tle­ment and one in­tri­ Play­mo­bil gu­ingly named Sur­prise), and rep­re­sent a fun lit­tle ad­di­tion to your day around the city.

The ex­hi­bi­tion will re­main set up un­til Jan­uary 27 and the reg­u­lar fee of ad­mis­sion is €3.

Ate­neo Mer­can­til build­ing is lo­cated at the town hall square, on num­ber 18, and is open from 10.00 to 21.00. By Joe Wick­man Va­len­cia will once again wel­come the ‘Jan­uary Queens’ this Sun­day, Jan­uary 13.

The pa­rade used to take place every year back in 1937 as a sec­u­lar al­ter­na­tive to the Three Kings, and was brought back when the cur­rent govern­ing team took power.

This year, the pa­rade will in­clude the par­tic­i­pa­tion of over 40 asso­ciations that will fill the streets up with ‘mu­sic, danc­ing, hap­pi­ness and colour’.

The event will start at the C/ de la Paz at 11.30 and will make its way to the Pl. Ayun­tamiento, where a speech pro­mot­ing love and cul­ture will be fol­lowed by a con­cert by lo­cal band Car­raixet to com­plete the fes­tiv­i­ties.
