This event, free of charge, is, in the words of the mayoress, “a Christmas gift for the students of our city”, who will be able to enjoy between December 10 and January 8 a set of 16 attractions and of food establishments, which can be accessed by exchanging the ‘tickets’ that will be distributed in nurseries, schools and institutes in Jerez, both public, private and subsidized.
As the councilor explained, this initiative began to take shape “last summer, when the Foundation expressed its desire to” make an important gift to the boys and girls of Jerez, and Christmas wishes are often fulfilled, because since then we set ourselves the challenge that Jerez would have this fair this Christmas for our boys and girls, who will have an average of 20 ‘tickets’ that will be handed over to them in their respective educational centers so that they can enjoy this Christmas fairground.”
Access, therefore, to the different attractions “will be completely free and will be made effective through the tickets that each school will receive”, where all the information about opening days and hours comes, and that they can even give to family and friends for your use and enjoyment “because there will be enough tickets”.
Regarding its location, the mayoress has stressed that the González Hontoria Park “meets all the necessary conditions in terms of infrastructure, security or electrical installations, and also encourages the attractions to be offered as a whole. “We are really very happy with this initiative because it represents an opportunity that the Foundation offers us to enrich our Christmas, and who knows, if later on, this Park could be the origin of a ‘Winter Wonderland’ like those organized in London’s Hyde Park, since, in the future, this event could attract a lot of tourism and people from other places”.
Before concluding, the mayoress reiterated her gratitude to the Foundation, underlining “their effort to move this park -which is set up in Ubrique- to Jerez, because obviously they are not the same dimensions in one town or another”.
For her part, María del Carmen López Mariscal has emphasized the relationship that her father and president, José Luis López, maintains with Jerez, “which has marked many important moments in her business and personal life; hence she feels that part of her roots belong to these lands; roots that have served to consolidate a business relationship that has been paying off”.
For this reason -as he explained- “now the Foundation wants to give back to Jerez society part of what it has given it. But beyond a mere transaction, for the president, all this supposes a social action that fills him with happiness. Enjoying a totally free amusement park is a gift that the people of Jerez deserve this Christmas”.
Likewise, he recalled that the Foundation’s social work “does not start in 2015, but rather that its origins took place more than 25 years ago, only now, with the López Mariscal Foundation, social assistance is channeled, which it has always relied on the one who has needed it”. In addition, he thanked “the exceptional reception that this new solidarity project is having, which will fill young and old with enthusiasm”.

Lastly, he pointed out that “there will be days when the little ones will have a surprise, consisting of different characters from films or cartoon series, visiting the Foundation’s Amusement Park, and they will be given candies and toys, completely free of charge.
