July 25th is Dia de Santiago in Santiago de Compostela. This means that the town throws a party and normally follows up with some fireworks around 22.00 or so.

So what is happening this year?

Well, I stopped by the tourist office a few days ago and asked this exact question. The answer is, we don't know. They usually do not have a program ready until just before the day itself.

So for you that are looking for information regarding this day, you need to wait.

Once I know anything I will post it, either here or as a story on the main page.

Greetings from rainy and grey 22c Santiago
(yes, the sun went away. Expected back Wednesday),
