A very late night

Very few things start on time here in Bigastro. Last night we arrived for the main parade and waited and waited and waited. Finally though (about two hours late) we were rewarded with a fantastic show.

When the parade finished we went for much needed refreshments. At 1am we were further rewarded when, what seemed like the whole population of Bigastro paraded down the main street clapping in time to the band. When they arrived at the main square, the church bells rang and we were treated to a spectacular firework display. It is how Bigastrense welcome in the day of San Joaquin.
