Every year in the ancient city of Old San Juan there is an artisanal festival called Las Fiestas de la calle de San Sebastian, dedicated to Saint Sebastian. One of the most notable traditions is the parade featuring the Saint Sebastian’s that have been carved throughout the years. In this photograph one can see some of the carvings along with the Puerto Rican flag and multitude of people marching in the parade.
