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!

Fallas 2009 – Mascletà March 12th

Add to Flipboard Magazine.

Piroquiles de Turis has been moving up in the Fallas calendar — each day closer to the 19th is considered a step up. Last year they performed on the 5th. And after today’s great show, I’m sure they’ll be moving up again! Some pictures of this rather insane Mascletà display:

Mascletà March 8th – Fallas 2009 (Smoky)

Don’t let the smoke get in your eyes! Or if you can’t avoid it, just try and enjoy yourself anyway. Because, like, there’s really not much you can do. You’re in the middle of tens of thousands of people, the ground is vibrating, and you’re getting rained on by cardboard from exploded fireworks. Try and see the beauty in it.

That’s the situation we found ourselves in during today’s massive and hugely attended mascletà. With a finale that just went on and on, and huge billows of smoke, this was Fallas 09’s most intense (and fun) mascletà yet.
