Many of the main activities take place in "Parc de l'Espanya Industrial" and it's nice to walk around the around 22 streets in the Sants Festival area which are decorated by residents in colourful themes.

Visitors can enjoy papier-mache giants and big heads - called gegants and capgrossos - at various events including the opening parade and the giants ball.
There are also a chance to see festive and impressive Catalan traditions like the correfoc fire run which is usually at Plaça Osca at 8pm for children and 10pm for aducts and there is usually a 'castellers' human castle building event at Plaça Bonet i Muixí.

Sporting highlights of the Sants Festa Major are the bike race Cursa Ciclista 'Memorial Antoni Andrés Sancho' and the 2k run (2 circuits of 1000 metres) called '2000 de Sants - Cursa atlètica de la Festa Major.'

Both the bike race and the run are usually on the last Sunday of the festival. 

The Sants neighbourhood Festa Major festival finishes with a 'Piromusical' fireworks and music display on the last Sunday of the festival at 10pm - 22.00 at Parc Espanya Industrial
