The Nit de Foc (Night of Fire) spectacular in the Turia riverbed is probably the year’s most anticipated fireworks show in Valencia.
The show was the work of the company Ricardo Caballer, who’ve been operating since 1888 and were also in charge of Fallas’ final mascletà. They must be the most important pyrotechnic company in the region.
Over 4000 kilograms of gunpowder was used in a show that lasted over 20 minutes, and consisted of one highlight on top of another. According to the newspapers, over 500,000 people showed up to watch the fireworks, which started at 1:30 in the morning. That’s over half a million… difficult to believe. I would doubt that a single one left disappointed.
