Listen in, listen Ian!
Oporto's most popular event is St. John on the night of 23 to 24 of June. In this season it's a tradition to have a vase with bush basil decorated with a small poem. During the dinner of the great day people usually eat sardines and boiled potatoes together with red wine.

In the evening everybody gathers in downtown and hit each other with plastic hammers and leeks.


Hmm.
