Charity Santa parade attracts 200

Nearly 200 Santas took part in the seventh Armação de Pêra Parade last Saturday.

Organised by the local parish council, BTT Algarve Maniacs, Urban Gym and the Holiday Inn Algarve, the event was in aid of the Espaço Amigos de Armação de Pêra, who provide food for local families in need.

Urban Gym provided warm-up exercises, after which the Santa Parade began through the streets of Armação de Pêra.

“It was quite a sight to see so many Santas setting off on their walk together,” said organisers, thanking the participants for the donations – boxes full of food and close to €120 to support the Espaço Amigos.
