Halloween is now also an event celebrated in Spain and La Herradura has a special group of people dedicating their spare time to organize annual events like this. This group is called El Grupo Enebro and was formed as Cultural Association in 1985, collaborating in various cultural events held in La Herradura.
As a theatre group they also organize theatre plays performed by their own Grupo Enebro, and written by local authors, such as Paco Guerrero and Rafa Garciolo, which included: “La Herradura Super Show”, “…Que miran las sombras”, “25 Galeras y un náufrago”; “El diablo que llevo dentro”, etc., presented in La Herradura; Almuñecar, Salobreña, Motril, Otívar, Granada, Seville, Torremolinos, Malaga, Campotéjar, Trevélez, as in 1987 they were included in the Circuito de Teatro de la Diputación Provincial de Granada, and participated in a tour of several towns.
In 1987 the group increased its cultural activities with the creation of a so-called Comparsa, (Carnaval type group going out in the streets with music and dance) with which they won several first awards in contests in the Costa Tropical region, even shown in a programme by Television Sur.
They have collaborated in various patron festival in La Herradura, recovering old traditions and they have promoted the theatre school, creating and managing various groups that participated in the Teatro Martín Recuerda contest. Moreover, with their “Peter Pan” show they created the youth theatre group “Enebrillo Teatro”.
Since its creation, it has also been collaborating with the San José parish in La Herradura, where they formed the choir of the Church and try to keep the La Herradura tradition of Tradicional Rosario de La Aurora.
