Descripción del evento

Tradition tells that fire drives away evil spirits and purifies the soul.  The Night of San Juan, one of the shortest of the year, which we celebrate on June 23, is one of the most awaited parties for both children and adults. That night, the firecrackers explode at will, scaring more than one, and the bonfires, fed with all kinds of objects (wood, cardboard or anything that is susceptible to burning), rise proudly to the sky. Bewitched by the magnetism of the bonfires, children, young and old have gathered since time immemorial around the fire, dancing, laughing, singing and, the most daring, even jumping on the flames.
