Festas de Lisboa – June 2013
Street entertainment, festivals, cinema, music and theatre, parades and folk festivities are just some of the events planned for Lisboa’s days and nights throughout the summer. The historic districts, the cosmopolitan Avenida da Liberdade, as well as the capital’s avenues and streets will all welcome the Lisboa Festivities for all those who live here and those who visit. Mainly, these celebrations take place in the historical quarters of Lisboa. At the street parties, people dance, listen to Fado, eat grilled sardines and drink. It is also traditional to hold a collective wedding ceremony where the brides are known as “Brides of Santo António”.
