There was a huge crowd gathered for Pirotecnia Valenciana’s mascletà on the 17th… the sun was shining, and it was finally warm enough to get away with just a T-shirt. The fireworks were classic — nothing too surprising, but a good, solid show all the way through.

After today’s mascletà, put on Pirotecna Turis, a friend looked over at me and said, "I’ve seen a lot of mascletàs in my life, and that was the best". "WHAT?!" I screamed my response at her, blood streaming out of my ears and tears running down my ruined face. "I CAN’T HEAR YOU, OH GOD, I CAN’T HEAR ANYTHING".

I was THIS close to David Villa!!

If I stuck out my arm I could have touched him! David Villa graced the Plaza de Pilar with his presence today for the Plantà — Mahou beer sponsored him to come out and help set up a couple of the pieces. I just stood there, along with the rest of his crazed fans, screaming and crying and peeing myself. Yeah, I was a mess, but at least I didn’t leap upon his back like a monkey and cover his head with kisses — and I was seriously thinking about it.

Wow. Today’s mascletà, I think everyone in attendance will agree, was … insane. A great way to start the first of the Big 5 Days of Fallas. Shot off by the company Europlá, this was one of the most incredible shows we’ve ever seen. Again, we were lucky enough to have a bird’s eye view, but I think as long as you were anywhere within a 394-mile radius, you couldn’t avoid being bowled over. Take a couple aspirin, then check out that finale.
