In Venezuela, the celebration of San Juan coincides with the arrival of the rains, the night before, on the 23rd, the ornaments, altars that the saint occupies, are seen and to the rhythm of drums the Velorio de San Juan is performed. 

The “sanjuaneros” express their respect for the saint, walking the streets with joy and devotion, entering different houses of people who “pay promise” (they asked the saint for a miracle), the dances to the rhythm of the drum are given at each stop , the participants carry colored flags that they wave all the way.
