Once again, the Gracia street festival will be on in Barcelona from August 15 to 21, 2007.
If you are in Barcelona these days for holiday or business, you should visit this buzzing and always interesting district. Specially at night it is worthwhile a stroll, as there are many live concerts from Folk to Jazz.
Last year, more than 1 millon visitors attended the festival.
18 streets will compete for different awards, such as the nicest or most innovated decorated street. Residents of those streets will have prepared the decoration during many months.
Experience the spectacular correfoc (a dragon spying fire while running back and forth through the local streets at night, and surrounded by devils with drums and fireworks). Get dressed with old clothes and a cap or hat and do not get to close to the dragon, specially with kids and take care of your kids.
Other activities include the also amazing human castles, a tradition throughout Catalonia, exhitions, sport competitions, art and activities for children, apart from fireworks.
Many of the streets will have a kind of sit-together of the neighborhood along long wooden tables in the middle of the street, enjoying lunch or dinner with home made food and barbecues, sardines, paella……
At quite some places food and drinks will be sold, so don´t worry about bringing along anything.
Come and enjoy the festivities.
