Romería in honor of San Agustín, Arafo
The main event of the Romería is the huge parade through town. That usually lasts two or three hours. You don’t have to be shy and watch from the distance. The Canarians are happy to celebrate with you. So get into the crowd and watch the animals, the carts, the food pass right next to you. You won’t regret it.
The parade will proceed into a big party. Filled with happy people talking, laughing and dancing in the street. In most towns, there’s at least one stage with live music. This is where most people gather. The stands stay open until the party ends – and when it ends is up to the people. It’s a typical Spanish fiesta by all means.
