Fallas 2010: Events for March 13th

Add to Flipboard Magazine.

Got any plans today? I sure hope not! And if you’re well rested, that’s even better. Make yourself a healthy breakfast, because you’ll need the energy for today.

Before we start with the rundown of today’s events, some interesting news: Cuba-Literato Azorín won this year’s Fallas street light competition.  Well deserved and their win will hopefully mean even crazier street lights for Fallas 2011, as Sueca-Literato Azorín attempts to regain their crown.

Here are the day’s main events.  It bears saying that in every neighborhood of the city, there will be smaller events all weekend long – from mobile discotheques to sing-along playback competitions, from street paella to mini-processions. We recommend picking up a local paper – Levante or Las Provincias – because the list of events is overwhelming.

  • Mascletà at 2pm
  • Moors and Christian parade at 7pm here
  • Cabalgata Folklórica at 10:30 pm C/ Paz, Ayuntamiento, C/ Játiva
  • Mascletà de Colores after the parade in Ayuntamiento (some say at 11:30pm some say at 1am – does anyone have more info?)

We feel for everyone who can’t make it to this year’s Fallas, but hopefully the content we’ve posted so far helps soothe the pain!

And we’re feeling for everyone who lives in Valencia and can’t wait to get the hell out of here and away from the noise!

Fallas has just begun, so there are a lot of events coming up… Here are some of them:

  • Everyday at 2pm, the Grand Mascletà in Plaza del Ayuntamiento
  • March 6th: Mascletà Napolitana at Las Arenas beach (highly recommended) starts at 6pm
  • March 6th: Turning on the famous street lights of Calle Sueca at 9pm (we’re not sure of that time — can anyone confirm?)
  • March 6th: Cabalgata del Ninot starts at 10:30pm, ending with a color Mascletà in the Ayuntamiento
  • March 7th: Cant de l’Estoreta is a neat little kids parade at 11am which ends with a Mini Mascletà

We’ll let you know about more events after the weekend, otherwise it’s just too much. For last-minute event updates, keep your eye on our twitter account: @valenciablog

And if you have any information or tips about this Fallas, please don’t hesitate to get in touch with us. We’re always looking for a good Fallas story. And if you’ve got a good spot to watch a Mascletà, fireworks or the Cremà, hook us up!

Anyone else in Fallas fever?
