The Mayor of Arrecife, Astrid Pérez, alongside the Ayuntamiento’s Tourism Councillor, Armando Santana, have presented the Local Commerce Dynamisation Plan for the last quarter of 2022, with a budget of just over 50,000 euros.

Various musical, artistic and recreational performances will feature on Arrecife’s main streets such as calle León y Castillo, Canalejas, El Almacén, Fajardo, Hermanos Zerolo y Antono Porlier, and Sopranis, as well as La Plazeula, Plaza Las Palmas and the Charco de San Ginés.

One of the main objectives of the plan is to reinforce the commercial image of Arrecife and its commercial centres. Santana highlighted the upcoming opening of the Open Mall Shopping Centre this Autumn, something that the Ayuntamiento believe will greatly strengthen the capital.
