Festa Major de Sants

Festa Major de Sants. The Sants Festival in Barcelona in Sants neighbourhood of Barcelona overlaps with another popular neighbourhood festival, theFesta Major de Gracia.  Although not quite as famous as Gracia festival,  the "Festa Major de Sants" is worth a visit.  Many of the main activities take place in "Parc de l'Espanya Industrial" and around 14 streets in Sants district of Barcelona which are decorated by the residents in colourful themes.

There are many chances to see Catalan traditions like the
correfoc fireruns for children and for adults. The Diada Castellera human tower day is atParc de l'Espanya Industrial and you can see giants and big heads calledgegants and capgrossos at the opening parade and at the giants ball. Sporting highlights of the Sants Festa Major festival are the local bike race Cursa Ciclista 'Memorial Antoni Andrés Sancho and the 2k run (2 circuits of 1000 metres) called 2000 de Sants -Cursa atlètica de la Festa Major."

Both the Sants bike race and the Sants run are usually on the last Sunday of the Sants festival. The Sants neighbourhood festival finishes with a fireworks and music display.
