Starting on Monday the beaches are allowed to open, and in Hoy por Hoy Locos por Valencia we have asked the heads of some Valencian municipalities about their opinion about this party.
On June 23, the day of San Juan , it is common to see the beaches full at night with groups of people making bonfires in a festive atmosphere . However, this year the party is in the air due to the coronavirus crisis and difficulties in maintaining social distance. Starting from phase 2 of the de-escalation , the beaches are allowed to swim , although with limited capacity, and in Hoy por Hoy Locos por Valencia we have asked the heads of some Valencian municipalities for their opinion about this party.
All agree that some kind of limit will have to be placed on the party to avoid crowds and some are considering canceling the party, although they doubt what instruments the town halls can use to prevent the movement of people on a date that, probably, would be about to end the state of alarm decreed by the Government after the coronavirus crisis.
David González, first mayor of Oliva , explains that the City Council has suspended all celebrations, but if citizens decide to go to the beaches that night, the Police will guarantee that the safety regulations are met .
