Boiler-makers/tinkers

These popular fiestas originated in San Sebastian but more recently have become something that is celebrated in other towns and villages around the Basque Country. Tradition says that foreign men and women would come to the town and to cries of “we’ll mend your boiler” “we’ll mend your chocolate-making machine” used to walk through the town offering their services. Nowadays groups of people walk around the town playing music and encouraging all to enjoy the fiesta.
