Fallas 2010: The Nit de Foc
The Night of Fire is one of the most eagerly anticipated events during Fallas. Thousands of people gather around the Paseo de la Alameda at the ungodly hour of 1:30am on March 18th to see some of the best fireworks in the world.
At least, usually they are. We weren’t terribly impressed with the Nit de Foc this year, but it might have just been the cool weather or general exhaustion.
As always, the true adventure starts after the fireworks show, during the walk home. There are so many people on the street, and with drunk kids shooting off firecrackers from the river bed, getting home can be a somewhat scary experience.
Did you see this year’s Nit de Foc? If so, what did you think?
