This Festival is an annual celebration and is extremely unique. This wonderful experience occurs every March in Spain.
Just before spring, in the city streets, the guilds stopped working at night and burned in front of each workshop the rustic parot. To feed the fire, these artisans accumulated old strips and chips of wood together with old junk collected from the neighbourhood. Afterwards, the parot would be brought to life with rags giving it a human form, with an old hat as the head, and so the Ninot figure was born.
From 1 to 19 March, every day at 2 pm in the Plaza del Ayuntamiento, the city vibrates to the sound of the traditional mascletà, a display of gunpowder explosions that beats out an original sound. Afterwards, the city’s terraces fill up as people go to participate and enjoy a typical aperitif and some traditional Valencian food under the Mediterranean sun.
Come on over to this amazing Festival and experience a unique celebration.
