It is noticeable that summer is here, little by little the coastal cities are presenting their corresponding fairs and returning to normal capacity. On May 11, the famous San Juan de Alicante Bonfires fair was presented at the town hall, although more than famous we should call it historic, since in one week we have the top figures of bullfighting and the boom of José Tomás.

The presentation was in charge of the mayor of Alicante, Luis Barcala and the organizing company Eventos Mare Nostrum, in charge of which is Nacho Lloret.

The posters are very finished in which the pillars of the subscription are Morante de la Puebla and Jose Maria Manzanares with two afternoons each. There is also an evening for Alejandro Talavante in the year of his return to the ring, another evening for Roca Rey, the most successful bullfighter at the moment, one for Pablo Aguado and one for the most talked about bullfighter so far this season, Tomás Rufo, who opened the Puerta del Príncipe in Seville and the Puerta Grande in Madrid.
