Hogueras de San Juan Alicante
Are you ready for a party? 💃🏻🎉
We are going to Fallas in Alicante! If you haven’t experienced Fallas in Valencia, now is your time. Hogueras de San Juan en Alicante is the same as Fallas in Valencia. Same costumes, traditions, figures, and fireworks. Those Fallas started from the 20th of June till the 24th. The most important day is the last day (24th of June) because there is La Cremá (burning of figures).
Detailed main dates:
20th of June – on this day Fogueras de San Juan officially begins. At midnight “la plantà” takes place, that is, the process of assembling the deeply satirical polychrome papier-mâché and wood.
21st and 22nd of June – commissions make la Ofrenda de Flores a la Virgen del Remedio, patron of Alicante. The flowers are deposited in a catafalque in the Plaza de Abad Penalva, where the co-cathedral of San Nicolás is located.
23rd of June – the day of the “International Folk Parade”, a colorful parade with floats, dance groups, music bands, and dancers from various countries. It is a parade where the participants show the typical dance music of their country, dressed in traditional costumes.
24th of June – the day of “La Cremá” – burning of figures. The festivities end with the popular “Banyà” (bathed), carried out by firefighters to put out the bonfires and alleviate the heat of the public while singing and applauding.
