Scores of 'pirates' land in San Sebastian. Bounty? Popular participation in the fiestas.

For the 6th consecutive year scores of young people provided with home made rafts and dressed as pirates have landed in the classy beach of Kontxa in the Basque city of Donostia (San Sebastian) claiming more popular and participative festivities, something that does exist in all other Basque cities and most towns and villages but that is lacking in elitist Donostia, where "fiestas" seem to mean little more than fireworks and standarized parades.

The popular participation for this event has been growing since it began to be organized six years ago.
