The reality what is going on our "historic capital" of the Islands, the aged Betancuria, which makes us unite even more and put from Oasis Park Fuerteventura our bit.
Betancuria not have the prestigious "Auto Sacramental of the Magi" on January 4th at their church, but will have their big "The Magi Parade" with their three camels on the 5th.
In previous years the economic situation of the City, could not cover the cost of transport used to carry the camels provided free by Oasis Park Fuerteventura for the great day of the parade to Betancuria, so humbly and an endearing way the city council I replace three camels for a lovely donkey to parade.
Betancuria as all the municipalities of the island is one of the mainstays of Oasis Park Fuerteventura and the root of the traditions that day by day we love to remind everyone of our visitors, each of the municipalities are represented in our park, Giving their name for many specimens of plants and wildlife extremely important to the world of conservation.
Betancuria is the name that our first and principal breeding female giraffe was baptized in the park. From Oasis Park Fuerteventura we have seen Betancuria is going through many difficult times with hardly any help, and before the new event featuring the Diocese of Canarias in which not allowing them to perform an act of unique tradition recovered after 30 years. Oasis Park Fuerteventura want to make clear their position, understanding that it is disrespectful to all Betancuria and the island of Fuerteventura what is happening right now, by not allowing the representation of Order Magi in their church.
We know that the cavalcade does not cure civic unease, but help the children may overflow with illusion saved to the memory on this such an important date. Oasis Park Fuerteventura put at the service of the city council needed without any cost make a memorable and endearing show, the camels go in their finery and make both young and old, to move to the origins of our history, up feeling of excitement and fantasy.
For 20 years Oasis Park Fuerteventura has worked with all the town councils of the island of Fuerteventura, Pajara, Antigua, Tuineje, La Oliva, Betancuria, Puerto del Rosario which are provided free camels needed for their cavalcades in the different villages each of these municipalities.
We have taken the responsibility not to miss on such a special day, for which the park, on January 5 of each year should to reduce their daily activity camel rides, as the biggest reserve of camels in Europe located in Oasis Park Fuerteventura leave more than 50 camels for the cavalcades in villages and hotels.
In the reserve of the camels, biggest in Europe located in the south of Fuerteventura island late on January 5th, while all prepared at home the last detail, this logistics is impressive, carers and veterinary care and pampering the camels of their Majesties to get back to the installations after a long day of cavalcades, receiving trucks, preparing dinner of the camels under the command of their caregivers, closing their doors that day at 4 in the morning, January 6th next day the reservation must rigorously open their doors to serve the thousands of tourists who come to celebrate the day of the Magi doing a camel ride. We are proud to participate with majorera population that has seen us grow, and to have this gift participating freely with the session camels year after year already for this park is a tradition that is a that big economic and physical effort that is compensated with the faces of the smallest on the big day.
