Last weekend, during the celebration of „Mig Any“ (Half-Year) Moraira, announced the nominations for the Moors and Christian Fiesta. The new captain of the Christian group is only seven years old and will become the youngest captain in the history of the Fiesta.
Captain of the Christians, Fila Conquistadoras, is Sento Alaminos Carles. With seven years of age, he takes over the responsibilities of a Captain and will make history. The Moors, better said the Fila Califas, has not yet announced its nomination.
The announcement of the nominations was the first official ceremonial act of Carla Beltrán, Fila Almoraima since she recently has taken over the presidency of the “Junta Central”. She announced the names of the vice president and the speaker, José María Vallés, Fila Almogavares, and Pilar Vallés, Fila Huestes del Cid. The former president, Victor Oller, used the event to bid farewell.
“The Festeros have proved once again how important the Fiesta of the Moors and Christians is. It is a symbol of our society. I would especially like to mention the courage of Sento Almanios and would like to thank him for accepting the nomination of Captain. The same for Carla Beltrán, the current president. Both stand out for their youth and their readiness to take over such responsibilities”, this the words of Aitor Llobell, fiesta councillor.
