Barcelona recovers its New Year’s Eve show on Avenida de María Cristina. Fountains, lights, music and fireworks will welcome 2022. Here the plan is to dine at Abrassame and savor the spectacular menu that we have prepared to welcome the year, take the lucky grapes from the dome while watching the show in the heights and dancing with family, friends and toast with cava and celebrate the beginning of 2022 with party favors.
After meetings with colleagues, friends, family, feasts, nougat and eat the 12 grapes, the long-awaited Three Kings parade arrives, so that the kids can see their idols before they begin to distribute their gifts. The prelude to the end of the festivities and indulgences 🙂 The parade begins at 6:00 p.m. at Av. Marqués de l’Argentera passing through Pla de Palau, Paseo de Isabel II, Vía Laietana, Urquinaona Square, Fontanella St., Catalunya St., Pelayo St., Universidad Square, Ronda San Antonio, Sepúlveda St., Av. Parallel and will end at Av. Reina María Cristina.
During these days, the best plan, regardless of which you choose, is to share it with your loved ones, people who add you, who make you happy and that you make them happy too. Enjoy dinners, feasts, meetings with hugs, kisses, sharing laughter, remembering good moments, good vibes, dancing, singing … in short, to be happy, these parties and always 🙂
