Livestock is also important in Alaro, emphasizes also in this order: herd sheep, pigs, and one might. It must be added the presence of a poultry farm for the production of eggs for sale.

 

As for the fiestas, they are commemorated annually in honor of the Patron of the town, San Roc; his feast day is August 16. Along with San Roc, are co-patrons of Alaró Sant Antoni and Sant Sebastia. But they also celebrate other holidays such as Sant Pere (held in the trendy Los d'Amunts) and Sant Antoni (with bonfires and blessed). Finally, in this section indicate that there are celebrations during the Christmas and Easter, when processions are especially prominent in the Palm Sunday, Thursday and Friday, and traditionally found occurring at 8 am on the day of Easter, and after which it is customary to eat Easter mallorquí frit, with pies and robiols in celebration of the Resurrection of Christ.
Also noteworthy pilgrimage twice a year to make the inhabitants of Alaro Castle to celebrate Mass near the Mare de Deu del Refugio (one, the Sunday after Easter and again in September).
One of the most important economic activities in Alaro has been, and still somehow (despite the crisis), the footwear industry, which in its moments of glory came to keep active for more than 30 factories and 2,000 people .
