Pictures of Batalla de Flores 2009

batalla-flores-2990

These pictures are a little late — the Batalla de Flores was towards the end of July. I was annoyed while taking them, because I had to stand on my tip-toes behind the crowd the whole time. Meanwhile, hundreds of other photographers were running around on the street. Where’s my press pass?! Anyway, onto the pictures. I wonder if you could get away with throwing oranges instead of those flowers…

First 2pm Mascleta of Fallas Season 2009

Add to Flipboard Magazine.

La Despertà wasn’t enough for the beginning of Fallas 2009 — nope, there had to be another Mascletà, at the more traditional time of 2pm. The last Sunday in February is a huge, busy day in the city. By the time this mascetà was over, we’d been awake for over 8 hours, seen two parades, and two fireworks displays, and watched a pelota tournament (Valencia’s official sport — don’t worry, we’ll post about that soon). And it was only just past 2!

Time for a siesta! Because later in the evening, the beginning of Fallas would be officially announced at La Cridà — the opening ceremony…
