Espírito Santo

The Holy Ghost Festivals of Espírito Santo are very important to the Azorean people. The festivals are rooted in medieval traditions and typically held on all the islands from May to September, including lively parades and large feasts. As part of the tradition, soup and bread are handed out to revelers during these events. On Terceira and other islands, decorative houses called Imperios are the staging points for the feeding of the masses.On Sunday June 12th staff and guests of Pico Sport went to Candelaria to join in the festivities there.
