Pancake racing on the beach

Algarve animal charity APAA is hosting its annual Pancake Races on Shrove Tuesday, February 21 on the beach in front of the Holiday Inn in Armação de Pêra, from 10.30am.  

There will be races for people of all ages, with prizes for all winners, and entry will be €1 per race.

After the races, there will be a fun table quiz (one for adults and one for the youngsters) starting at noon at the hotel’s Bar Boa Vista, costing €2 for adults and €1 for children.

Holiday Inn chefs will provide a range of sweet and savoury pancakes for sale and, as in previous years, will donate all profits to APAA.

APAA volunteers will sell jams, marmalades and chutneys in the foyer as well as secondhand books. They will also run their popular tombola.

In the event of inclement weather, the races will be cancelled but the quiz and other events indoors will still take place.
