On the night of the 4th the "romances" are sung to the saint, to the parish priest and to the mayor. On day 5 in the afternoon games: cakes races, rope shot, etc. (always for women).

Puimelero Party: No fixed date. It is celebrated on Pentecost Easter. Romeria on Saturday to the hermitage of the Virgen de Puimelero, on the banks of the Alcanadre River, food by gangs in the "river." The typical food is the "sartenada". Formerly it went with cars and galleys, and when returning to the town they were planted and the town was turned around, now it is done with tractors and trailers. Saturday and Sunday dances and performances. Until a few years ago the pilgrimage was done on Monday.
June 24: San Juan, "small" patron of the town, therefore it was called the small party and the celebration of the married. Verbena and bonfire. Formerly the mass was made in the hermitage of San Juan (former monastery, perhaps of the order of temple) and adorned the saint with the manzanetas of San Juan. In the afternoon the married people who organized the party went with a donkey and a car through the streets to collect sweets and pastries, which they later distributed at dances.
Third Sunday of August: Major festival in honor of the Virgin of the Assumption. For 6 days these celebrations are celebrated with many acts for all ages that would require a separate chapter. They used to be celebrated on the third Sunday of September.
