Expect plenty of oohing and aahing as this year's Fallas fireworks programme makes an explosive start, tonight, at Valencia marina.
The first banging multi-coloured show lights up the skies above the marina this evening from 8pm, and be prepared for even more gunpowder-powered spectaculars through the month of March.
Valencians are rightly proud of their pyrotechnic heritage and fireworks displays form an important part of the annual Fallas festival. See the full programme below so you don't miss out on a chance to crane your neck in excitement!
2020 Fallas Fireworks Programme
The Fallas festival started in March 2020 but was subsequently postponed due to corona virus. It is expected to continue in July, with new dates for the main events from 15 to 19 July 2020, but this will be subject to final approval by the Central Fallas Committee and, of course, dependent on the health situation. As soon as we know the new dates for the fireworks programme we will update them below, in the meantime we have left the original dates. To receive updates, register to receive our newsletter.
