Public Holidays for 2018 - Murcia Region and local to Mazarrón

(Please see UPDATE at end)

I have added a list of Public Holidays for 2018, applicable to the Murcia Region of Spain and including local public holidays in Mazarrón and nearby municipalities in the Region. You can find the list, which is available for download in .pdf format, in the Links page, under 'Public Holidays', of my personal Spanish website here (where you will also find a link to download public holidays for the current year, 2017, as this may still be useful for the remainder of the year).

You can also download the .pdf file of Public Holidays in Murcia for 2018 directly from this blog article by clicking here.

For those who are interested, you can view the official Spanish source documents for this information:
- here for the .pdf version (this is the formal official version);
- here for the HTML website version;
(These are the formal Murcia Region documents which contain the decisions authorising these public holidays, as gazetted in the Official Gazette of Murcia Region ["Boletín Oficial de la Región de Murcia"].)

As I wish to keep the list of Public Holidays I prepare as a one-page single-side document, I am unable to include every municipality included in the official BORM list, but in response to a comment received for my list for 2017 published in late 2016, I have added Fuente Alamo to my list for 2018, because it is fairly close to MCC, specially with the opening of the new motorway link a few years ago, and of course because of the popularity of the golf course at Hacienda del Alamo amongst many golfers in the area. I hope this will be helpful to those who live in or visit that area.

NB/ If you do wish to find information for other municipalities in Murcia Region not included in my list, you can find the information required in the official Spanish source documents linked to above (either the .pdf or HTML versions).

UPDATE (31DEC2017 21.35 GMT) I have written a blog article with details of public holidays for 2018 for Murcia Region, the Valencian Community ('Communitat Valenciana') and Andalucía ('Andalusia') - you can read it here.
