The patronal feast of San Mauro is a very awaited moment by the whole community of Aci Castello. The party is announced on January 15 in the morning by the sound of the party bells and the firing of the firecrackers. The whole community gathers at the Mother Church for the unveiling of the simulacrum of San Mauro welcomed by the faithful with the waving of white handkerchiefs. The solemn Pontifical presided over by the Bishop follows. In the afternoon the statue of the Patron is placed on the artistic launch and carried in procession through the city streets: at the war memorial people will pray for peace in the world and in the square of Porta Messina there will be the traditional descent of the Angel, during which a statuette of an angel is sent down from heaven. The procession continues to the marina for the final blessing and the fireworks display at sea.
