The central part of summer is marked by the Summer Pag Carnival, when the town brass band plays the traditional Pag wheel-dance on Petar Krešimir IV Square, a masquerade is held, folk chants are sung, and a folk play Robinja (Slave) is performed. The biggest religious holiday in Pag is Assumption of Virgin Mary on August 15th, celebrated by an official procession.
