About The Great Week in San Sebastian
A festival for all tastes. During the week that marks the Virgin’s Day (Aug. 15).
This Basque city in northern Spain makes a big celebratory fuss that includes an International Fireworks Competition.
There are sports events including horse races, a beach volleyball tournament and “herri-kirolak” exhibitions (Basque rural sports).
On the first day, a canon is fired at 19h at the Alderdi Eder gardens in the harbour, signalling the start of festivities which includes musical entertainers and daily mini parades of bands and giant puppets.
Children can also avail themselves of workshops, games and a disco.
All week, international competitors showcase their firework displays along the waters.
An awards ceremony takes place on the last day and it all ends with a fabulous, vivid musical firework display.
