Kutxa Day

In Hondarribia fishing vessel skippers and authorities march from the Marina to the Parish on 25th July. During this festival, a young girl, i.e. a fisherman’s daughter carries a box holding old documents to then return along the same path to the Fishermen’s Guild, once there, the young girl stands in the middle of the arch created by oarsmen with their large oars. There, with the Box on her head she must spin as often as she can, since according to tradition the number of spins she makes determines the successful catches for that year.
