Last weekend was the reenactment of the Mores and Christians fiesta in our local town of Benissa.
They really go to town with these, with the main town closing for days and the car park being used for the castle. Each year the costumes change with the most elaborate finishes
It begins on Friday with marching bands and continues Saturday and Sunday with thunderous blunderbuses, parades, storming of the castle and retaliation, on through till Monday. All very late nights and usually packed with onlookers.
We had a friend staying, so Chris took him down to enjoy the fun.
Not really my thing as you have to stand for hours with the crowd and it´s just plain ear bashingly noisy.
Thought you might like to see some piccies of it........erm there´s quite a lot!!!!
They really love the blunderbuses and fire crackers
Then they move into the narrow side streets where it is even louder, you also get covered in hot spent gunpowder if you are not careful!
It is quite something to see, and each night everything is cleared and cleaned and you would never know anything had been going on apart from the props.
All back to normal now, we can use the square, cafes and shops, until the next time
