Palma.—The correfoc fire run through Palma last night brought the weekend's celebrations of the capital's patron saint, Saint Sebastian to an end.
Over the weekend, tens of thousands of people enjoyed a host of activities and events which kicked off on Saturday night with live music and BBQs in squares across the city centre.

Tens of thousands of people ignored the wind and occasional rain to gather round the BBQs and party into the early hours listening to the live music.
Then, for those with some energy left, the annual Saint Sebastian Cycle Ride took place on Sunday morning with an estimated 9'000 cyclists taking part. Cyclists of all ages took part with many dressing up in fancy dress for the fun ride which set off at midday from plaza Santa Eulalia to the Son Moix sports centre where a huge party was thrown for the cyclists and prizes awarded for various categories.

The event was also used by cycle groups to protest against the removal of the cycle lanes from the Avenidas.
Yesterday, there were special events at Bellver Castle, an equestrian display by the mounted police and last night, despite the fire work display being scrapped this year, thousands turned out again to watch the correfoc.
