The Three Tombs of Sant Antoni will arrive in Cambrils on March 13

Cambrils will celebrate the festival of Sant Antoni two months late. It will be next Sunday, March 13, when the main activities of a day that decided to be postponed in January due to the high incidence of the pandemic will take place.

This Wednesday, the mayor of Cambrils, Oliver Klein; the president of the Agricultural Cooperative, Pau Serra, and the technician of the Festes department, Concep Ferrer, presented the program of activities that has been prepared for this edition that arrives at an optimistic moment, with the risk of regrowth in decline but without forgetting security measures.

The two scheduled events are the popular breakfast and the Tres Tombs. Klein and Serra recalled the importance that this festival has had in recent years and expressed their desire to once again promote this long-awaited celebration that evokes the agricultural past of the municipality.

Unlike other years, the program of events has been concentrated on a single day. On Sunday morning, starting at 9 am, the facilities of the Agricultural Cooperative will host the traditional breakfast that usually brings together dozens of people from Cambrila and people from neighboring municipalities.

As usual, there will be some grills installed to cook the sausage, bacon and bread, which will be accompanied by the Cooperative’s extra virgin olive oil. The price of each ticket will be 4 euros and will also include water and fruit. In addition, the Cooperative’s Agrobotiga will be open and will offer discounts for the purchase of bottles of oil to those who show the breakfast ticket. Likewise, throughout the morning the Roscón de Sant Antoni made in Cambrils will be sold and the 15th edition of the Cava Plate Exchange Meeting will be organized.

Changes in the Three Tombs

For a safe celebration, the City Council has decided to modify the route of the Tres Tombs. The starting point will be at 12 noon from Calle Hospital in the direction of Calle Verge del Camí. Around 12:15 p.m., when they arrive at the courtyard of the Hermitage, and after Sunday mass, the priest will bless the horses and the route will resume, passing through much wider streets to avoid the accumulation of people. The entourage will pass through Baix Camp avenue and La Salle promenade and will make a second turn through Hospital street, Verge del Camí and Baix Camp avenue to finish the tour at La Salle promenade. Registration to participate in the parade will be open until March 7.

This celebration will feature the participation of a hundred horses from the Club Hípica Castells, the Club Hípica Tomás Santiago and the Hípica Herederos de Santiago, two schools that work equine therapy with children with autism or Down syndrome. The Band of Pare Manyanet de Reus will also be present. The events that will not be held on this occasion, and that have been canceled for the second consecutive year, are the Sant Antoni concert and dance, which are usually held in the sports hall.
