Apostle Fireworks kick start Santiago festivities

cathedral-fireworks-caminowAs you know, tomorrow is 25th July, Saint James Day (Santiago Day) and also Galicia’s Day. Santiago de Compostela, at the end of the Camino de Santiago, is in celebratory mode and so are we at CaminoWays.com!

The ‘Apostle Fireworks’ (Fogos do Apóstolo) take place in Santiago de Compostela at midnight today to kick start Santiago’s biggest day of the year. Many pilgrims will try to reach Santiago for this special date.

If you are not in Santiago, you can catch them live online on the website of the TVG (Galician Television Channel) from 23,30 tonight: http://www.crtvg.es/en-directo

And tomorrow, come to see us outside our office in Dublin city centre to celebrate this special date with us: from 4pm until 8pm we will be outside our office in 16 Redmond’s Hill (see how to get to the CaminoWays.com office). We will have practical information about the Camino de Santiago from our travel consultants and 53 Degrees North, you can collect a free pilgrim passport and your first Camino stamp, at 5pm we’ll have a free Camino de Santiago presentation upstairs, Galician singer Susana Garrido will be adding her musical touch to the day at 6pm and we will be enjoying more Camino-related activities…
