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.

Thanks to a very fortunate circumstance, we were able to experience today’s mascletà from the top of the Ayuntamiento. It was a good day to be on top — the streets became very packed, very early. We had an incredible view of the fireworks and the plaza, and hope that you enjoy our pictures of the bird’s eye perspective on this extremely loud mascletà.

After the fireworks, we were able to go onto the balcony and meet the Fallera Mayor, Maria Pilar Giménez, and the Fallera Mayor Infantil, Ariadna Galán. Both of them are even more stunning from up close — we were floored as much by their beauty as by their poise and warmth. At 9 years of age, Ariadna is amazingly confident and well-spoken. (I was still picking my nose and playing Magic at that age). And I got a kiss from Maria Pilar — sigh, I’m still swooning. What a day!! Just when we think Fallas can’t get any more exciting, something new comes along.

"Movin on up!" Nope, not The Jeffersons, but the Hermanos Caballer! Last year, they handled the March 7th mascletà, but in 2010 — March 12th! That’s a generous recognition of their talent and after today’s performance we’ll surely see their ascendancy continue. Incredible. Me? I just like that their name is "The Gentleman Brothers". You know that’s going to be classy

For the 2nd day in a row, no Rita? We’re not huge fans of all her politics, but during Fallas, you have to love Valencia’s mayor. She missed a great mascletà today.  Tons of falleras were in the crowd, to see a display that was classic in every sense, with fireworks that never let up and built steadily to a great finale. ¡Qué bote HolaValencia!

There was a big crowd on-hand for today’s mascletà, carried out by Pirotecnia Gori of Mislata.  Colorful, loud, and with a rousing finale, it was everything that a mascletà needs to be. The size of the crowd was amazing considering the nasty weather — apparently, nothing is going to stop Valencians from enjoying their most important fiesta!
