Hi. This week started from 23 June - 1 July 2007 at Portuguese Settlement, Melaka two big celebrations for the Portuguese ethnic will be held such as:

Fiesta San Juang
The feast of St. John Candles are lighted at all houses in the evening.

Fiesta San Pedro
Experience Portugal in Malaysia. The feast of St. John is commemorated by the local Portuguese - Eurasian community where a lighted torch motorcade makes its way from Assumption Church to the village for the lighting of a bonfire.

So many activities will be happen on that day like a Traditional Games, Cultural Performances, Food & Fun Fair and many more.
