From the 31 of July to the 6 of August we celebrate the Big Week of Piragües in Ribadesella. We will have activities for the little ones, party, fun and, of course, the LXXXI International Descent of the Sella. The Party of the Canoes this 2017 continues in the process of recovery, rescuing some of the traditions that had been lost as a result of the economic crisis.
· On Wednesday 2 of August:
– Autonomous Flag Lifting Ceremony in the village of Ribadesella. Winners' Walk
- XII Regata Villa de Ribadesella «Mini Sella».
Saturday August 5 at 12 in the morning the LXXXI International Descent of the Sella between Arriondas and Ribadesella. In this edition, the number 81, the reading of the proclamation will be in charge of the most awarded Spanish athlete in the Olympic Games, the canoeist Saúl Craviotto (Two golds, one Silver and one Bronze), in charge of reading the traditional verses of Dionisio de la Huerta after which the "Asturias Patria querida" is sung and the exit of the test is given.
After the race, the Picnic in the Campos de Oba, this year will feature a catering service so that each and every one of the registered canoeists participate in a meal by the river. The prizes this year will also be given in this place.
There will be a free bus service that will connect the Ribadesella grocery store with the Campos de Oba, operational from noon and throughout the afternoon of Saturday 5 of August.
This bus service complements the one provided by the Fluvial Train or Tren de las Pirguas. The railway convoy will undergo some changes this year. Instead of leaving the platform located in the port of Ribadesella, in front of the Casa del Mar, it will do so from the FEVE station, in the neighborhood of Fuerte. In addition, your stop will no longer be in front of the Campos de Oba, but in the Lloviu station, where there is a platform that guarantees the safety of the passengers.

The Emburria Association of Cangas de Onís, dedicated to the attention of the psychic and cerebral paralytic disabled, will assume the management of the parking lot of Piraguas, which this year will be enabled at the entrance of Arriondas. The parking will be located on the farm where Aquasella is celebrated, in front of Coviella and will be managed and coordinated by the people of Emburria. Those who park their vehicles there will only have to deliver a donation of 2 euros that will be used to finance the numerous activities that this group organizes throughout the year.
Car parks Piragües Ribadesella 2017
Given the scarcity of parking during those days, and to forget about fines and tow trucks, it is recommended to park the vehicles in the car parks that are specially enabled for those days.
With regard to the ordering of traffic, this year the N-632 road will not be cut at the height of Truyes, so the parking located in that place will not be enabled either. In exchange, the number of seats in La Mediana will be increased and the El Fuerte car park will be used as an alternative "where cars can be needed". There will be a free public transport that will connect both areas with the center of the village.
