There are still left two weeks of summer vacation and, even though, it seems quite a short time, Barcelona‘s agenda is full of cultural and popular activities. Barcelona’s inhabitants are already counting the hours until the Popular party of Gracia kicks off, which is the highlight of August. But the Barcelona agenda is not only limited to this festival, because immediately after the Festa Major de Gracia, the popular party of the Sants district takes place.
In both cases, the streets are dressed up with hundreds of colours and shapes as the culmination of a hard work carried out by the neighbourhood residents along the whole year. The result is a few days filled with activities for children, lunches and dinners with traditional Catalan dishes, street concerts of all kinds, including rumba catalana, rock, pop, etc. But these days you can also enjoy free sessions of open-air cinema thanks to the season Gandules 2010 that takes place at the CCCB every Tuesday to Thursday during the month of August. In addition to that, you are still on time to attend the concerts framed in the San Miguel Mas i Mas 2010, which will allow you to enjoy musical performances of jazz, blues, flamenco, funk, soul and rock in several venues associated with this music initiative.
All these events and many more make Barcelona a perfect destination for you summer holidays.
