Many other towns and villages, in Catalonia, will host this Festival as a one-day event only. However in the case of this town, the saint in question is actually their patron saint.
So actually a week or so before the saint’s day, the flag is delivered to the chosen bearer. A proclamation is red, and there’s lots of activities, such as exhibitions, concerts and dancing. Then on the day of the St if it falls on the weekend, or generally the closest day to 17 January, there will be the procession of the owners with their horses and other animals. Unless you have a fear of horses, this is actually really beautiful to see.
