Popular Saints Festivities

Postby diskwizz » Thu Jun 07, 2007 6:45 pm

From mid to late June it’s Popular Saints Festivities-time in Portugal.
These are very popular in Lisbon and most towns in Portugal also hold celebrations. The Algarve is no exception!
Evenings full of festivity, traditional music, wine and plenty of grilled sardines in honour of St Anthony (officially celebrated on 13th), St. John (on the 24th) and St Peter (celebrated on 29th).
Decorations include balloons and arches made out of brightly-coloured paper and people ‘march’ to celebrate the saints (‘marchas populares’)
Have fun in and participate in this age-old traditional Portuguese celebration:
9th June - 10pm Portimão - Riverside area
15th June - 10pm Alvor - Riverside area
23rd June - 10pm Praia da Rocha - Av. Tomás Cabreira
