The summer's top party

The San Sebastián calendar is especially crowded in summertime, but perhaps its highlight is mid-August's Aste Nagusia (Semana Grande in Spanish, Great Week in English), a weeklong festival dating back to the 19th century which envelops much of the city. It includes parades; parties; concerts; celebrations of Basque culture such as traditional dances and rural sports; a pirate-themed boating event; and nightly fireworks from the Alderdi Eder Gardens adjacent to the city hall.
