Christmas Animal Parade in Retiro Park

I have heard there is an animal parade in the evening of December 24th but can't find details anywhere. Anyone know when and exactly where? Thanks

I have heard about an animal parade on Christmas Eve, but have not been to it myself and I have no details.

I notice that you are Madrid based - have you considered contacting the tourist office to enquire? Alternatively, the park has a website which you could check for contact details etc. www.retiropark.com

I have just noticed that you also posted a question about midnight mass on Christmas Eve in which you mention you are travelling from the US. I am slightly confused as your profile states your location as Madrid, Spain!

Hello Flora,

I am new to Madrid (since August). My two grown daughters and their "significant others" are coming for Christmas. That said I want the perfect trip. I speak very little Spanish so all those cool websites, even with Google Translate, are still confusing. I have seen many of your posts-how wonderful that you can be so helpful to all us "newbies." Thank you!

Liz

I live at Plaza Mayor -the tourist office is helpful sometimes, depending on who is working the counter. (Like when I enquired about all the cabling right outside my fourth floor apartment...No clue)...thanks again to you!

Liz: thanks for the clarification. I can understand why you want things to be perfect.

I have checked the internet and cannot see any specific information about the animal parade. Do try asking at the Tourist Office. The website I gave you for the park is in English.

Hopefully you saw the posts by Revulgo and ati which provided a link to an excellent site detailing what is on at Christmas in Madrid. In case you did not see it, I have copied it again for you below as this may be of some assistance to you in planning activities for your family. It is in English.
