The locals get dressed up in traditional 19th-century costume, the streets are decorated and street parties are organized with live music where everyone drinks lemonade and eats eggplant fritters. These are Madrid's popular working class celebrations that involve religious processions in the evening leaving from churches on Calle Embajadores, Calle Salitre and Calle La Paloma. They take place from the first weekend in August to the middle of the month. They start with San Cayetano's feast day around Plaza de Cascorro, followed by San Lorenzo near Plaza de Lavapiés and ends with La Paloma along Calle La Paloma and Las Vistillas park.
