Las Fallas must be quite a festival, exceeding Mardi Gras in New Orleans. Looks like the mayoress has been practicing her royal wave. Thanks for posting something many of us would never see otherwise.

Thanks for the reply,

I have HUNDREDS of photos of Las Fallas, if you are interested in more. just give me a shout...

The festival is crazy, every year it has the worlds largest fireworks display, it turns out that Valencia is the "home" of fireworks in the world now, where all the newest fireworks are developed and designed...

Its a very old festival celebrating the start of summer, they build statues from anything flamable, they are always jokes with characatures of famous poeple, at the end of the festival they are all burned, symbolising that bad memories and the past should be "burned"...

Yes, I'd love to see more of Las Fallas. I've only read about it and love the way they implement the concept of renewal. The theme occurs in many cultures but they do it in a huge way.
