Fallera Mayor & Infantil 2009 – Marta & María
The new Fallera Mayor & Infantil have been chosen! May the Reign of Marta commence! Hers will soon become a familiar face in the city over the course of the next year — the Fallera Mayor is an important presence at nearly every official event in Valencia, carrying out her prescribed duties: smiling, waving, and looking beautiful.
The Fallera Infantil has similar duties, and how these girls make it through the year is a mystery to me. With hair & makeup, let alone getting into that dress, they must have the patience of monks. During the 19 days of Fallas, they’re dressed up all the time! Do they sleep in those dresses?
Congratulations to Marta & María! We’re sure to be seeing more of you in these pages soon!
