Hi,
In case there is anybody out there who has not read all the publicity surrounding this
4 yearly event, here is a reminder!
Tomorrow, Suday 30th June, the children (some as young as 4, but up to 13 or 14 I think)
parade from the 7 hills garden at the bottom of the castle, down to the roundabout with the
Tabuleiro figures on it, along towards the old bridge and up the Corredoura to the Praça
Republica. The tiny tots carry a basket and the older ones wear the tray (tabuleiro) on
their heads. Some of them are so confident that they only hold the tray with one hand!

It is well worth a visit, though be warned, there are usually crowds there, though not so
many as the BIG day next Sunday with the whole procession, including the bullock carts.

It starts at 10 am (last time they actually started at 10.15 which is "punctual" for Portugal!).
I just hope tomorrow is not as windy as today as we are having a gale here.
