It is followed the next day by the Pig's Trotters Festival, when those in attendance sample the pig's trotters auctioned on the previous day. After the auctioning of the pig's trotters, they are now coocked and accompanied by cabbage 'bertóns,' an exclusive recipe from this neighbourhood that is also available in different restaurants. There is also music and dancing in the evening.
