When we first came to Bigastro, the festival lasted two days and many houses in the area decorated their walls with floral crosses. There was even a competition for the best cross. The harsh economic climate has taken its toll and so the festival is a much lower key event these days. However, it is still important to the people who live in the area who will be there for mass on Sunday morning.
