Perpetrating an ancient tradition celebrating the summer solstice, the Roman Catholic Church has consecrated June 24th as the day for the celebration of St. John the Baptist, one of the central characters of the Bible and Annunciator of the Coming of the Messiah. St. John’s Testimony emphasizes Light and the Holy Spirit.
On June 24, St. John’s Day, the Feast moves from Monaco-Ville to Monte-Carlo. A procession forms up on the Place des Moulins (Mill Square) where the old olive presses used to operate. Program includes various folklore groups, traditional costumes, songs, dance, a special service at St. John’s Chapel, traditional bonfire and a procession.
The folk groups form a guard of honor around “Little Saint John” and his lamb. The procession, accompanied by music of its own making, reaches the Church of St. Charles in the parish of Monte-Carlo.
