Las Fallas! March 15-19 2011 Valencia Spain

Put 2011 in the books as maybe the best Las Fallas ever!

During Valencias traditional holiday you will find displayed on every corner across the city giant narnots, paper mache figures over 20′ tall.

Every day at 2pm the city erupts with large firecrackers in a deafening mascleta…some of the loudest firecrackers in the world!

The mascletas have become a competition between neighborhoods to see who can make the best, before ending in the terremoto (meaning earthquake) literally hundreds of mascletas at once!

This centuries old tradition closes with some of the most extravagant fireworks you will see in the world. Here is a great you tube video of some of the 2011 display.
