The Fires de Sant Narcís, or the Fairs of St. Narcissus, take place the week in which October 29 falls. They are celebrated in honour of St. Narcissus, the patron saint of Girona, and begin the Friday before that date with the appearance of parades and the reading from the top of the balcony of the Town Hall at the hands of the town crier appointed that year.
The day begins with a solemn mass in the Basilica of Sant Feliu in Girona, in whose chapel, according to tradition, the remains of the saint rest.
The celebration ends with fireworks on the Sunday after October 29. In addition to the liturgical ceremonial, the Fires de Sant Narcís has become an opportunity to celebrate a series of playful and recreational events of enormous tourist attraction, especially in the local barraques, where musical events, dances, an important agricultural fair, gastronomic tastings and other similar activities take place.
