The annual Fishermen´s Festival honoring the patron saint of fishermen culminates in a boisterous late night celebration in the street along the port. Local fishermen wearing grotesque masks and costumes made of fishnets mingle with the crowds in a haze of firecrackers.

Location: Port de Andratx, Mallorca, Spain
