  Día de San Juan
  Day of Celebration: June 24th
  Celebrated:   Andalucian

Día de San Juan (St. John) - this fiesta is one of the year´s most memorable ones as it celebrates the longest day of the year and the summer solstice. From the early hours, people set up "camp" all along the beaches of La Herradura and Almuñécar with tents, chairs, food, music and blankets. As tradition mandates, at midnight everyone moves to the shore to wash their faces, symbolizing the elimination of past troubles and their hopes for the year ahead. The festivities continue well into the next day when a weary lot of people head home.
