Las Fallas Valencia Reviews
Las Fallas Party Mar 16, 2011
Valencia comes alive for Las Fallas every year to celebrate spring arriving in Spain. Locals crash bangers in the streets and parades from all corners of the city bang their drums all day. At about 2pm everyone gathers in the town square to watch the mascleta, a 120db fire cracker show that tingles your ear drums pushing them to the opposite sides of your head and your tiny hairs on your arms shake with reverberation from the show. On roles midnight and every gathers on the bridges to watch the colourful fireworks display. Afterwards everyone locals and tourists alike drink and party in the streets and disappear in the nightclubs below.
LAs Fallas lasts for a week and culminates in the burning. All cardboard manufactured 20foot tall statues are set alight to a spectacular blaze and spring is now aloud to commence.
Find any hostel, party tour to take this all in but don't plan to sleep much as the noise doesn't stop for sunshine or moonlight.
