In the morning the Sant Medir groups go around the streets of the Gràcia neighbourhood on horseback, in carriages or vans. A band accompanies the parade, with group members throwing sweets to onlookers.

In the evening, following the gathering at the Sant Medir hermitage in Collserola, a big procession takes place in C/ Gran de Gràcia. The parade is headed by members of the City Police Mounted Unit, followed by 26 groups, between them throwing tonnes of sweets to the public before ending up in the Jardinets de Gràcia.
