Overview of festivals and celebrations in Portugal
Residents of the cities of Torres Vedras or Ovars engage in mass festivities in a rather comical and care free manner by poking at giant humorous figures of politicians which they themselves have constructed. In a way, they are in the process, exercising their rights to freedom of expression. Usually, the eve of Maslenitsa is a period of spending time with family, going out to publicly held celebrations and wearing traditional Portuguese costumes. For locals, this is an opportunity to have a good time since it includes also a long-awaited reunion with friends and loved ones.
