Playmobil figures take over Valencia
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.
