It’s San Juan, one of the biggest celebration weekends on Gran Canaria and throughout Spain, and that entails many traditional fiestas, midnight dips in the sea and various rituals with bonfires and fireworks. Every municipality and neighbourhood is likely to have their own bonfire, as long as there is no fire alert, and there are always strict rules to be followed.

The biggest celebration is in Las Palmas de Gran Canaria. This year 2019 marks the 541 st Anniversary festivities of the foundation of the city at the same time.
