29 June - Fisherman’s Day in Grenada
June 29 is a date to remember the hard work, commitment and courage of all the men and women who dedicate themselves to the fishing activity in Grenada and Peru. On this day, St. Peter, patron saint of fishermen in the country, is worshipped, where many of the faithful ask for blessing and protection for their trips to the sea.
On June 29 l'Ametlla de Mar celebrates its summer festival, the feast of Sant Pere. The verbena is held on the 28th and kicks off this festival in honor of fishermen, organized by the Fishermen's Guild of l'Ametlla.
