Festa de São João

Every year, on the 24th June, the city of Porto, in the north of Portugal (also Braga), becomes lively and seemingly crazy.

The party starts early in the evening of 23 June and usually lasts until the morning of 24 June. The traditional attractions of the night include street concerts, popular dancing parties, eating barbecued sardines, drinking wine, people hitting each others heads with those plastic hammers and releasing illuminated flame-propelled balloons over the summer sky.

Summer sky... :)
