As has been the case since 2015, Praça Mouzinho de Albuquerque is once again one of the mandatory crossing points in the itinerary of the São João Festivities, being the first of four places in the city to host this season’s usual amusements.

As of Friday, May 26th, there will be carousels, elastic beds, traditional games, tombola, bumper cars, and other rides. The attractions will be, as usual, accompanied by many food stalls, always open starting from 12pm, with typical São João’s food such as sardines, pork steaks, and the typical Portuguese soup, caldo verde.

Devised for the whole family, this will be one of the four amusement parks assembled for the biggest celebrations in the city. The other three, which will take place in Alameda das Fontaínhas, in Jardim do Calém and in Passeio Alegre, open on June 16th.

In Boavista, this space will be open from Monday to Thursday, from 2pm to 11pm, on Fridays, from 2pm to 1am, on Saturdays, from 10am to 1am, and on Sundays, from 10am to 11pm.
