In spain there ara a lot off festivals. we have a diferent kaind of cultures in our territory.

Arround the world is very famous " the San Fermines" o " the tomatina" but Spain is more than these.

In my Region for example are very popular grastronomyc Partys.In there you can taste amazing plates like " Pulpo a Feira" ( octopus party) very popular all over spain.

I live in Lugo and Two important festivals take place here:

Saint Froilan festivity, which lasts from 4–12 October, dedicated to the city's patron saint. It's a PARTY  of National Tourist Interest and it's very popular to eat polbo á feira in one of the many stands near Rosalía de Castro park.
Arde Lucus, festival celebrated in the last weeks of June which revives the Roman and Celtic past of the city, and which emerged to commemorate the declaration of the city's Roman wall as a World Heritage Site in 2000. In its latest editions it has reached nearly half a million visitors.

if you look for them in internet you will find videos and phothos about the party.
