    A Festa de São João is indeed one of the biggest parties/attractions in Portugal.
    It’s probably most remembered by the releasing of illuminated flame-propelled balloons. If one isn’t aware of them, he/she might think it’s a UFO.
    On that day, sardine price goes up higher than a sky rocket – this year was no exception.
    At midnight is held a big firework that everyone can’t miss!

    But it does not end there! After that, ’till the sun comes up, people (specially youngsters) keep partying!
