FESTIVIDAD OF SAINT VINCENT FERRER
 May 2, 2011 to May 15, 2011
Easter has its extension with the St. Vincent Ferrer, the patron saint of the Commonwealth. Even for Spain, Valencia has a lot of festivals though this seems a particularly worthy one. It is customary to visit his house in Chapel converted Natal, where "The Pouet Sant Vicent" which is given to children to drink "to be able to converse whilst young, so as not to suffer from angina, not to lie nor are blasphemous."

Within the festival, children orphaned represent the "Miracles" in the thirteen Altars are being lifted in the various neighbourhoods emblematic of the city  provided by the image of the pattern.

The Altar or Cadafal oldest of them dating back to 1561 are mounted and installed each year Pouet next to St. Vincent.

The day of Saint Vincent Ferrer or second Easter Monday, as he was also called, is not a provincial, as in some localities of the province is a day job completely.

Fiesta de San Vicente de Ferrer
A week after Easter, the people of the Autonomous Region of Valencia pay homage to their patron saint, San Vicente de Ferrer. In the centre of Valencia itself, children perform plays depicting his miracles.
San Vicente was born in Valencia in 1350 and died in Vannes in 1419. He was a theologian and preacher, and also an important political figure. Eventually he became a missionary, travelling around Europe, preaching several times a day to crowds of 10,000, working miracles, frequently fasting and sleeping on the floor.
On the saint's feast day, it is customary to visit his old home, now converted into a chapel. Here children drink from the Pouet de Sant Vicent in order that they "begin to speak at an early age, do not suffer from tonsilitis, do not commit perjury and should never be blasphemous".

Vall d'Uixó,
La Fiestas Patronales de San Vicente Ferrer -
San Vicente Ferrer patron saint's day fiesta
 
Bulls, young bulls, firework castles, dances and open-air celebrations make up the programme for the San Vicente Ferrer fiestas, held every year in La Vall d’Uixó, in Castellón province.

At the same time a major agricultural fair takes place, attracting people from all over the province, and there is an archery and a horse-pulling competition. This traditional competition is designed to test the horses’ strength, with a series of trials where horses must drag their own equivalent bodyweight against the clock. Another important act during the fiesta is the saint’s procession. The typical festive dish of the town is “empedrao”, a stew with meat, rice and beans.
