We are coming to the end of the festivities, they go on a bit longer than normal in some areas.
Santa Cruz the lights are still in full glow, and this will go on till Santo Amaro on the 15th Jan, and may well stay on for the rest of that week to the 19th. I believe Camacha is the last to finish everything on the 21st January.
