Many of the city councils in Maresem region have decided to suspend the traditional San Juan festival, to avoid crowds and mass celebrations.
The Sant Vicenç de Montalt City Council, among others, suspends the Sant Joan festival but offers fireworks for all the inhabitants.
The fireworks will be at 23:00, from the tower of the Hermanos Gabrielistes park and from the roof of the El Gorg Civic Center, so neighbors can enjoy them from their properties in San Vicenç.
