Taking place each March, Las Fallas is a celebration of the coming of spring and a chance to say goodbye to winter. Locals say goodbye to the cold nights by building giant ninots (puppets or dolls) out of cardboard, wood, paper machè and plaster, and then burn them! Spectacular fireworks are set off there is plenty of dancing and singing in the streets.

The ninots are made to look lifelike and are topical, poking fun at Spanish politicians and celebrities. Young men wander around the city making little hard-to-spot holes in the Ninots and filling them full of fireworks. Just before midnight the gathered crowds start to chant, the streetlights are turned off, then at midnight the ninots are set ablaze. What follows is an explosion of fireworks, fires and a party to remember!
