Fiesta Veraneante - Marmolance Huescar

Every year in August in Huescar, the Fiesta of the Virgin de la Cabeza takes place. On the evening of the 14 August there is a large fiesta , with music and dancing, in the main square. The following morning at 7 o’clock a statue of the virgin is carried from Huescar to a church close to the San Clemente Lake in the sierra marmolance. All the people from the town follow the procession. The route is long and obviously very hot, but everybody from the town likes to make this journey. Once at the church there is a mass and then everyone eats out in the countryside.
