Benidorm City Council Events Department has already started the assembly of the Christmas lighting, anticipating the usual dates "at the request of the Independent Association of Merchants (AICO)", as explained by the area councilor, Jesús Carrobles. As in the previous year, this artistic lighting will be installed in the central area of ​​Benidorm and in the main streets and / or avenues of the rest of the city's neighborhoods, where the largest number of shops and traffic of people are concentrated.

Carrobles has indicated that "in an atypical year like this one, marked by the pandemic and its consequences, it is important to carry out measures that help boost economic activity, in this case commercial, which has been clearly affected by the health crisis" .

The forecast is that the lighting will turn on "in mid-November, once the dates on which our Major Patron Festivities should be celebrated" have passed. Carrobles recalled that traditionally "the Christmas lighting was turned on during the first days of December, coinciding with the opening of the Plaza de la Navidad and the start of the special Christmas program", and that for it some elements of the artistic lighting were modified installed for the Holidays.

"We believe that the presence of lighting from an early date can stimulate consumption by bringing the joy of Christmas to the streets," said the mayor.
