Bonfires of San Juan


Description

Alicante celebrates the arrival of summer with this festival. The streets are filled with bonfires, booths, singing and dancing, with the entertainment running well into the night. The highlights of the event are the bonfires. Enormous figures of cardboard and wood are burnt on the night of 24 June. They do so in a spectacle of fire, music and colour known as the "cremà". Other important moments are the entry of the bands and committees with their "fire beauties" dressed in traditional costume (each neighbourhood chooses a candidate to be crowned the "fire beauty" of the festival), the international folk pageant and the floral offering to the Virgen del Remedio. Every day at 2pm the noisy "mascetàs" (firework displays) are also held in the Luceros square. Typical food includes figs and "cocas" (a type of flat bread topped with tuna, onion and pine nuts).
