Verbena De San Juan

0 Reviews

Verbena De San Juan is a traditional fair celebrated annually in Saint John, Paraguay.

This event has its origins in the Christian faith, yet the festival is part cultural and part religious. 

During this Celebration the Paraguayans carry out bizarre rituals such as jumping over huge bonfires to be forgiven from their sins of the past year. 

Fire plays a big part of this celebration as with many others for the Paraguayans. 

The main tradition of this festival is the lighting of a fire during the night of San Juan in order to give more power to the sun.
