San Juan Feature
Feast of San Juan
Each of Puerto Rico's 78 municipalities has a patron saint, and each one celebrates an annual festival near the saint's birthday, sometimes lasting a week or more. These festivals are a great opportunity to hear live music and buy local arts and crafts. San Juan celebrates its patron-saint feast in the noche de San Juan on June 23, when locals take to the beach. The event culminates at midnight, when crowds plunge into the Atlantic to flip over backward three times, a cleansing ritual expected to bring good fortune.
