An app created specially for Benidorm Pride is a “must-have” for those planning to attend the festivities that begin on September 5.
Spanish site Alicante Plaza this week drew readers’ attention to the app, saying that it not only provides a complete list of all the attractions but also allows one to buy tickets for events that have entry fees.
The app can be installed via Google Play and the Apple App Store.
The site also reported that an estimated 20,000 people are expected to attend this year’s Pride, an increase of 5,000 over the last one held in 2019 before the Covid pandemic.
At a press conference on Friday the Councillor for Festivals and Events, Jesús Carrobles, said:
Benidorm Pride is one of the benchmark events in our city.
And Santos Torres, one of the organisers, said that Benidorm hoped to recover its position as the fourth or fifth most important Pride events in Spain.
Torres added that, between September 7 and 11 there will be six theme parties and that tickets can now be purchased through the Benidorm Pride Festival app as well as at a number of participating venues.
In addition to these parties, numerous events will take place in more than 40 gay-friendly venues.
The Pride parade itself takes place on the afternoon of Saturday, September 10 and will feature more than 20 floats. It departs at 5:00 pm and will travel along Paseo de Levante and a section of Avenida Mediterráneo until it reaches the Julio Iglesias auditorium in Parque de l’Aigüera.
Benidorm’s Mayor, Toni Pérez, said that the city council had provided the maximum it could to support the resort’s Pride event and that hotels expected occupancy of 98 percent during Pride week.
