Festival of San Juan Spain

Festival of San Juan Spain

Summer officially begins in Spain with the celebration of the Festival of San Juan.

It is traditional in the coastal regions to take to the beach every summer – just after the Summer Solstice.

With the longest day of the year just ended, Spanish people like to begin to party – the Feria’s begin (Festivals) and on the Costas (coasts) everyone goes to the beach, has a barbecue, sits with friends and family and enjoys themselves.

At midnight, everyone wades into the sea and washes away their blues in anticipation of a happy summer and a happy remainder of the year.

At 1 o’clock in the morning the fireworks begin to rapturuous applause and by daybreak most revellers will start to make their way home to some sleep!

Welcome to Spain!
