Sant John's celebration is big in Barcelona. People get a holiday next day to celebrate it all night! I was told that it is celebrated everywhere, but mostly around the beach areas. Three symbols of this celebration are: fire, water and herbs. For obvious reasons, beach makes a good venue for this celebration :) Check more details about this event here.
The evening started with hanging around the parks and the streets. This good-looking, handsome dog caught my attention.
A guy, busy on the phone with a handsome dog - good combination to earn some money :) I spent 15 cents to take these photos.
Then we went to a Basque style restaurant/bar. They give you a plate and you eat anything from the display. In the end, they will count the toothpick.
Beginning of Sant Joan's celebration.
Firecrackers like these will be everywhere - some of them with lots of noise and some of them with lots of flames..
and of course, singing...
I couldn't find my other friends by this time and it was 2'ish by then. So after some effort to find them, I went home. People mostly stays much longer and many of them all night.. 2am was enough for me :)
