I know that in all villages in Spain they think they have the best festivals around. I, like a good Bilbilitan, am not going to be any different when I invite you to the festival of San Roque in August. If you've ever seen or heard of the famous San Fermin festival in Pamplona, I'll tell you that this small Aragonese town has nothing on that. Years ago I met some people from Navarra and I told them to come on down to Calatayud because they considered the festival here to be the "little San Fermin." I've never had so much fun at a festival as I did here, so I'll tell you again that you have to come down and try it and tell me what you think. Cheers.
The festival of San Roque is held every year in Calatayud, from August the 14th to 17th. It is four days of great fun with dancing, bands, performances, running of the bulls (similar to the San Fermin running of the bulls but smaller and more modest) heifers, rides (bumper cars, horses, shooting and many others). I will post more pictures of everything going on and I hope that everyone www.minube.com will recommend this page to all your friends to raise awareness of our party to bring tourism and those of you with more pictures of these parties can post them here.
