Wall of Hope ceremony today

… as “new” Flower Festival continues

Wall of Hope

Today, between 10:00 and 13:00 will see the “Wall of Hope” ceremony in Funchal as part of the “Madeira Flower and Wine Festival”. The parade is traditionally an important part of the “normal” Flower Festival. This year parents have been asked to accompany their children as the place flowers on the wall of hope. Tourists are also invited to attend the event in the Praça do Município.

JM later reported the event as poorly attended.

Talking to the Diario, the regional secretary for Tourism and Culture says that he hopes this year’s scaled-down event will mark a turning point for the tourism sector in the Region.

Two concerts are scheduled for today in the central section of the Avenida Arriaga – one at 3:00 pm with the singer Alexandra Barbosa and another at 6:00 pm with the band Kontraband.

The “Flower Groups” will also take place again on the seafront.

There is a chance of some showers in Funchal later this afternoon, with rain forecast for the north coast.

Replication is an even more sincere form of flattery
