Se prepara Humacao para celebrar Festival del Grano

Aug 11, 2017 Written by  Redacción LA ESQUINA

El alcalde de la ciudad de Humacao, Marcelo Trujillo Panisse, invita a la ciudadanía al “Festival del Grano”, a llevarse a cabo el domingo 20 de agosto, en el Complejo Deportivo Osvaldo Gil Bosch, a partir de las 11 de la mañana.

El Primer Ejecutivo informó que se estarán presentando Rumba Caliente, Bengie y los Mulatos, El Barril De Jun, Ballet Cacique Jumacao y Yemberé. Habrán machinas, kioskos con la rica fritura humacaeña “El Grano”, artesanos y mercado agrícola.

Según un escrito e investigación del Dr. Miguel Ángel Beltrán Álvarez, el creador de los granos fue Vicente Cruz (El Negrito), quien vino de la vecina isla de Santa Cruz. La palabra grano viene del uso de los granos de arroz o por la configuración de trozos redondeados. La historia de los granos en Humacao data de los años de 1940. El éxito de los granos no es casualidad, sino una labor conjunta.

Bartola Rodríguez que en paz descanse, dueña de la fábrica informaba que Vicente (El Negrito) le vendió a Carmelo Cruz (hermano de Fausto, esposo de Bartola). Carmelo decide emigrar a Estados Unidos y le vende los “arneses” a Fausto, quien comienza con Bartola a operar la venta de granos desde la Barriada La Marina. Cuando sus hijos van creciendo se incorporan a la confección de granos. Desde las inundaciones de 1960 se mudaron a lo que es hoy Calle Cruz Ortiz Stella (abajo), donde era El Placer. Cuando entregan las casas de Patagonia continúan su elaboración de granos en su residencia, que se convierte en una fábrica en la Calle Sol #1. Desde 1962 han continuado ininterrumpidamente su confección en la que participa toda la familia.

    Hi, just wanted to let you know that we had a great holiday at Marina de Bolnuevo in June of this year (http://www.marinadebolnuevo.co.uk/about-bolnuevo). We flew into San Javier and hired a car from the airport for the short drive to Bolnuevo. The beaches are clean, most of them awarded the Blue Flag. The bars were great, with paella on the beach a must and managed a trip to the nudist beach there. Very liberating. We also visited the Big Guns, The Roman Mines and the Sand sculptures. Will be returning there again in 2018. Look forward to meeting you at Marina de Bolnuevo in the next few months. Thanks for reading Niall.

    Hello, just wanted to let you know that we had a great time at Marina de Bolnuevo in September of this year. We flew into Alicante and hired a car from the airport for the short drive to Bolnuevo. The beaches are fantastic, most of them awarded the Blue Flag. The cafes were great, with paella on the beach a must and managed a day on the nudist beach there. Very liberating. We also visited the Big Guns, The Roman Mines and the Sand sculptures.
