The Festival de San Andres is a popular celebration where people from different ages have the opportunity to participate and enjoy the celebration. In the Eve of the festivity, kids go outside their houses and carry pots, pans, tins or any metal stuff to make a lot of noise as much as they can. This part of the festivity is quite interesting and particular and it is called Arrastre los cachorros.

Throughout the celebration, people from different parts of the island and different parts of the world bring other useless metallic stuff and leave them in the Plaza del Charco that form a big assembled junk. This seems, at first, a good practice in Tenerife to maintain the environment clean by recycling garbage. However, this popular activity is more than an environmental action. It is part of a strong and historical tradition of the island.
