Thinking back on the Cant de l’Estoreta 2008, we had no clue what Fallas really was. This year’s kids parade in Carmen seemed even longer than last year’s. It went on forever! I don’t know how those little Falleras, for whom the parade is staged, manage to stay awake through the whole thing. Next year we plan on sitting outside a bar close to Torres de Serrano and enjoy it even more with a couple of beers.
Can anyone fill us in on the origins and meaning of this parade? There always seem to be a ton of authors and painters honored… And most importantly, what is the deal with the old furniture they drag on carpets down the streets?
Now, enjoy our pictures of some extremely cute kids!
