Over 3000 Festivals of Fun. Of Frolic. Of Faith. Carnival costumes: fantasies to wear. Fiesta del Pero-Palo: adevilofa good time. The people of Spain love a good festival. So hardly a month goes by without something happening in some city, town or village. All across Spain. There's all the fun, fireworks and costumes of the carnival festivals everywhere. There's the Feria de Abril in Seville to celebrate spring. At "Las Fallas" in Valencia 20 foot high sculptures are burned to cleanse the old and make room for the new. Stilt dancers in Anguiano celebrate the Feast of Mary Magdalene. There's the extraordinary running of the bulls in Pamplona and the Burial of the Sardine in Murcia.
