A plastic hammers street vender

A plastic hammers street vender.

A story behind: A city of Porto, Portugal has a special 24th of June holiday: the day of São João / Saint John. But the 23rd is when all the party happens – one of the biggest street parties in Europe – and there’s a lot of things to do. All day and night one can see and heat people hitting each other with the squeaking plastic hammers, one of the Saint John´s day traditions. 
At midnight there is a fireworks display around Dom Luis II bridge. The display goes on for 20 minutes and this is only the starting point for the second half of celebration: the night party and beach sunrise celebration.
