SMOKE SIGNALS San Juan Celebrations Across Lanzarote

Smoking San Juan celebrations are being staged across Lanarote this coming weekend..

The midsummer festival of San Juan is celebrated on June 23rd with bonfires and firework displays across Lanzarote – from back gardens to large scale communal events.

San Juan has its roots in the summer solstice, when bonfires were lit to ward off evil spirits and celebrate the coming light of summer.

Here on Lanzarote it’s best to hear north to the village of Haria located in the picturesque Valley of 1000 Palms, where the San Juan celebrations are stretched out across sixteen days of events. Culminating in a full on fireworks display this coming Saturday night at 23.30and live music and dancing into the early hours.
