Solemn Saint mass and procession at 7 PM, Solemn performance of sword dance Moreška in the evening. Impressive Korčula town confraternities processions through the walled town. 

Korčula town confraternities: All Saints (1301),. St. Michael (1603) and St. Rocco(1575). The halls of the confraternities have exhibits evoking the rich history and high aesthetic criteria of Korčulans over the centuries. Of particular note are the "torci" - wax candles which are carried in processions around the town, some of which weigh up to 73 kilos.
They are given names like "Zero", "Primo" etc depending on the weight.
