12:00pm - 7:00pm Bonin Field

South Bridge St, Holyoke, MA 01040
  • Add to calendar 2022-06-26 12:00:00 2022-06-26 19:00:00 America/New_York Noche de San Juan (Rain Date)

    What is Noche de San Juan? Puerto Ricans all over the world celebrate la Noche de San Juan – an eve of a feast for Saint John, the Baptist’s birth.

    Unlike other festivities around the world, in Puerto Rico, this celebration -which occurs two days before the summer solstice- marks a holiday spent at the beach. The tradition goes that at the stroke of midnight, people take at least three backward plunges – though some do seven or 12 dives, to rid life of all negativities.

    In Holyoke, we host a Festival with water activities for all ages to do a similar feel of the tradition

     

    Saturday, June 25th, 12PM – 7PM (Rain date: Sunday, June 26th)
