The Fallas was a custom created by carpenters celebrating the arrival of spring. On the night of the 19th of San José's day, they burned the pieces they used to raise the lamps that illuminated them during winter. Today they have become a very important tourist attraction, classified as a festival of International Tourist Interest.
In Bigastro, this pyrotechnic festival began to be celebrated in the 50s where the fallas were installed in Calle Barrio Nuevo (formerly C / Queipo de Llanos) where, in addition to the pyrotechnic show, festivals and days of coexistence among the residents of the municipality were held .
The Department of Festivities of the City of Bigastro wants to commemorate this festivity next Saturday, October 23rd at 9:00 p.m. after the campaign mass, where we can enjoy this pyrotechnic show.
This event is intended to recover this tradition - counting on the cooperation of artisans who will make the monuments that will later be burned.
Assembly of the fallas: Thursday 21 at 5:00 p.m.
Burning the fallas: Saturday October 23
Time: 9:00 p.m.
Place: Next to Parque de la Cruz
