We will be in Barcelona between Sept 19 and 23. I read the useful article in Tripadvisor about the Merce Festival, (Sept 20-24 in 2013, according to the merce.bcn.cat/en website). A few questions, as the info I located confused me:
1. barcelona-tourist-guide.com/en/events/la-mer… has two links under Program of events for 2013:
- one for Timetable of main traditional events of La Merce 2013. When I looked at it, it refers to 2012 and the dates are not for 2013 (e.g. the 20th is on Friday, not Thursday in 2013). Does anyone know where to find the schedule of events for 2013?
- one for Entire program of events for La Merce 2013 where, (unless I missed it), I could not locate any schedules...
I understand that the Piromusical takes place at the Magic Fountain, ( I am guessing but do not know), probably not the first night, on Friday the 20th. If this is correct, would anyone know if the usual 9 pm light show at the fountain will be on on Friday the 20th? We were planning to see the "traditional" show on this Friday night but do not know if it will be impacted by the Festival related activities.
I'd appreciate some clarification from a local regarding the above for 2013. Thank you.
