In the days surrounding the main weekend local teams will engage in soccer, volleyball and basketball knock out competitions, traditional pony racing will be held at the track close to town, traditional products will be on displayed and available for purchase, and a flag raising ceremony will take place on 11 August to officially recognise Oecussi Day.
