Spain is famous for its unique and crazy street festivals, and this fiesta is one-of-a-kind. Las Fallas Festival 2017 takes place in Valencia as a celebration of the coming of spring. It is a festival to wish a jubilant bon voyage to winter, where locals farewell those cold days and even colder nights by building giant ninots (puppets or dolls) out of cardboard, wood, paper machè and plaster, and then burn them to the ground on La Crema on the Sunday night. There are spectacular fireworks set off from every angle, and, of course, drinking sangria and dancing in the streets.
DATE: Friday, March 17th- Monday, March 20th: The bus leaves at 4:00pm on Friday and returns at 2:00am on Monday. (We leave late on Sunday after La Crema.)
