The Day of St. Blaise, the patron saint of Dubrovnik, is not only celebrated in the city itself, it is also celebrated all over the world. This year, as in many other years, St. Blaise has had official celebrations in Brussels, New York and Los Angeles, these festivities are generally organised by Croatian Diaspora Clubs.
The traditions of the St. Blaise festival in Dubrovnik are respected and cherished in these other world cities, and they all follow the same customs as the festival in Dubrovnik.
This video was sent to us from the St. Blaise celebrations in Los Angeles. This was the 26th time that Los Angeles have celebrated the Day of St. Blaise.
