The celebrations in honor to the Holy Christ of Peace are around the corner. The municipality of San Juan celebrates their Major Festivties from the 12th till the 16th of September and it is spruced up for the occasion. Neighbors, festers and peñistas will give life to these celebrations, filling the streets and corners of Sant Joan d’Alacant with joy, tradition, color and parties.
The festivities begin on the 12th with the entrance of peñas and peñistas, the dawn and the proclamation. This year D.

We will have every morning the “despertàs” and the parades of peñistas by the streets of our locality. There will be also activities for the little ones and “mascletás” enlivened with musical concerts at the Ordana Square.
The Offering of Flowers will take place on the 13th. The Procession in honor of the Holy Christ of Peace will be celebrated on September 14th, the Day of the Festivity of Christ.
On the 15th and 16th we will enjoy the most entertaining events with the Costumes parades and the great Parade of Floats at dusk. “Correfocs”, fireworks and pyrotechnics will light up our sky. In addition, we will have the Racó Santjoaner for all those neighbors and visitors who wish to enjoy these days with family and friends.
