Every 4 years Tomar organises the Festa dos Tabuleiros. It is happening in 2015 again, from the4th until the 13th of Juli. This festival dates back hundreds of years and is famous for its parades en decorated streets in the old centre. The decoration of the streets is an event in its self and is organised as a competition between streets. The result is colorful and splendid.
