San Sebastián - Caribbean’s Biggest Street Parties

San Sebastián Festival 
Thursday, January 15 - Sunday, January 18, 2015 

The San Sebastián (Fiestas de la Calle San Sebastián) Street Festival is held on the third weekend of January, and marks the end of the Christmas holiday season in Puerto Rico. 

More than a half million party goers take over the streets of Old San Juan in this wild, full filled open-air four-day street festival.

This annual festival blends the artistic, cultural and religious during the four day event. The large parades include bands, masked clown characters (vejigantes), stilt walkers, singers, street musicians, and huge, paper mâché heads called cabezudos. 

Here's a brief glimpse of the fun . . . 


Happy Travels,
