One neighborhood group puts on a performance as part of "Marchas
Populares". These performances are competitions between the different
neighborhoods in Lisbon, and neighborhood teams sometimes prepare for this event months in advance.
A girl looks out the balcony of her hostel at the tail end of "Marchas Populares",waiting for the parade to cease and the night to begin.
Partyers hit the streets of Lisbon from nightfall until dawn, taking
advantage of the plethora of bars that relocate to the street and sell
cheap drinks to all. Popular choices include beer, Sangria, and
"Ginja", a Portuguese liquor produced from sour cherries.
A man prepares grilled sardines, or "sardinhas assadas", the traditional food of Santos that is often
consumed right on the street.
