Spectacular Christmas Lights Are Being Erected Across Alicante City On Spain's Costa Blanca

ALICANTE is putting up its Christmas lights across the city centre involving over two million LEDs.

870 arches of lights will adorn over a hundred streets and squares in the city.

Erection work started last week with the big switch-on scheduled for late November.

The City Council are using a company that produces the world-famous display in Vigo.

Iluminaciones Ximenex have been given a budget of €343,000 for the Alicante lights- 36% more than last year.

New giant motifs have been created for the display with arches already erected on a number of roads.

Ground level lighting will also be installed at the Town Hall and Seneca squares.

Alicante’s Infrastructure councillor, Jose Ramon Gonzalez, said: “Visitors liked last year’s Christmas lights which bring in tourists who in turn spend money in local shops.”
