Festival of El Salvador del Mundo

Festival proceedings commence the week of the saint's day, on August 6. The main events of the festival are a religious procession, a large fair, various sporting events and a riotous party featuring street floats and dancers.

In my country today's holiday is The Feast of the Transfiguration. Grapes have to be brought to the church and blessed after the Liturgy. After today it is alright to eat grapes.
