There is almost some kind of festival going on in Spain every day. In Alicante and in many other Southern Spanish cities, there is a multi-day festival that commemorates the recapture of Christian Spain from the Moors.
Celebrations and parades happened over a couple of nights that I saw. A bit like Mardi Gras, each neighborhood has it’s “krewe.”
Full of color, sound, fireworks and even fire breathers, it’s a visual feast.
Guessing that the Moors were in blue and Christians in red. Go Red : > )
