Alicante celebrates the Bonfires of San Juan

Summer has just arrived on the Costa Blanca and this is the time when thousands of people take to the streets to participate in a colourful blend of fireworks and music near the sea.

For almost a whole month the city of Alicante celebrates this great homage to fire to welcome the new season. Just like every year since 1928, the city gets filled with huge figures made of cardboard and wood, ready to burn in the night of San Juan. Over 200 large satirical statues are set to go up in smoke, while a few ones are saved and kept in Alicante's Museo de Fogueres.

Each corner of Alicante enjoys this big fiesta with fireworks, street parties, flower offerings and lots of eating and drinking.

The climax comes at midnight on June 24, when the "cremá" takes place. Starting with a monumental fireworks show resembling a palm tree, the fires spread throughout the city for everybody's enjoyment.

This is one of the main events in Alicante and it has been officially declared to be of International Tourist Interest. Come and enjoy the !
