Concello de Catoira announces the cancellation of the Romaría Vikinga

The local government of Catoira informed this morning about the decision to cancel the Romaría Vikinga 2020.

Due to the regulations issued by the Xunta de Galicia, which generate great uncertainty regarding the possibility of celebrating, from July 1, parties, festivals and other popular events, such as what is organized every year in this municipality of Catoira on the occasion of the Romaría Vikinga, the Government of Catoira decided to cancel the celebration scheduled for the first week of August. The organization and programming of an event of this nature, in which thousands of people participate, must be carried out sufficiently in advance with the minimum and required security and preventive measures necessary to face the health crisis caused by COVID-19, so the logical and sensible thing is to suspend this year the celebration of the aforementioned Romaría Vikinga, a decision that the Municipal Government takes for the mentioned reasons and in the exercise of an enforceable sense of responsibility. On the other hand, Catoira Council lacks the financial, material and personal resources necessary to enforce the regulations that could have been derived from a future protocol of action for this type of activity with a large attendance of people.

Since this year marked the 60th anniversary of the festival, and in order to offer symbolic programming to the local public, the Government is working on the organization of some small events, with very limited capacity.

The decisions made have already been communicated to the other political parties of the Corporation. The Popular Party showed its agreement and support for these measures.
