Just when you thought the holidays (Thanksgiving, Christmas, New Year and Three Kings Day) were over, Puerto Rico offers one last holiday party bash. The Fiestas de la Calle San Sebastian, a three-day, three-night street party held on Calle San Sebastian in Old San Juan, is a tradition more than four decades old. Partly a celebration of the saint, Sebastian, the street party is characterised by lots of music, lots of dancing, and lots of drinking. Often, the event is ‘dedicated’ to a popular, living Puerto Rican musician, who leads the festivities.
