On the 20th August, it was the Vidal fiesta. Vidal is in the parish of Trabada and the fiesta takes place next to the church. It is also the village where Granero del Burro is. It is the only time in the year that you can easily walk to a bar and some entertainment!! It is only a tiny fiesta but is well worth going to. A real mixture of ages, from elder people whose families have lived in the area for generations to the children who go to the fiesta with their parents and grandparents.
This year, the orchestra from Ribadeo music college played at lunchtime. It was a baking hot day so everyone gathered under the trees in the churchyard to listen to them. Before they played there was the usual mass and parading of the statues from inside the church. The bar was open and people came for the 'hora de vinos' (hour of the wine!).
After the orchestra had finished playing, the group - American Star played a few songs so people could have a dance. In the evening they started again about 11 o'clock and played well into the early hours so there was plenty of opportunity to dance, have a drink and enjoy yourself. And you can walk back to the barn!!
