Fiestas del Apóstol

July 25th is the Day of St. James, or Santiago, and Gallegos dedicate almost 2 weeks of concerts and events in Santiago de Compostela, finished off with a giant multimedia fireworks display over the cathedral. 

For the complete Fiestas del Apóstol - Program
But what I´d really like to see is the Diá do Traxe Galego, with the runway and parade.  The variety of regional costumes from the mountains to the coast is really fascinating, some of them being family heirlooms.  This year it´s Sunday the 20th.
