Location
: Lima, Lambayeque.
Date: June 29.

Together with the communal task of dredging irrigation ditches, highland communities celebrate a veritable water festival.

On the coast, fishing communities have chosen Saint Peter as their patron saint, and render him homage in Lima's fishing districts of Chorrillos and Lurín, as well as in San José, located 13 km north of the city of Chiclayo.

The ceremony to Saint Peter and Saint Paul is held by the mouth of the Lambayeque River, where legend has it the founding god Naylamp landed on Peruvian shores. The figure of the saint is borne aloft amidst burning incense, prayers and hymns down to the sea where it boards a fishing launch and is taken around the bay to bless the waters in the hope of a good fishing season.
