The 2018 Fallas of Valencia is celebrated in different points of the city from March 15-19th. The gun shot that signifies the beginning of the event will be fired on February 25th, in a celebration known as the “Crida.” This event will take place in the Serranos Towers and marks the official start of the Fallas. After the “Crida,” the mascletás festivities happen each day from March 1-19th, transforming the Plaza del Ayuntamiento with explosions of noise and gunpowder every day at 14:00. It is normal to celebrate the mascletás at night and at the beach. The Valencian streets remain illuminated with colors and ideal details. In fact, some of these streets compete for the annual prize for the best illumination.
The “Planta” of the Valencian Falles takes place March 15th for the young fallas and the 16th for the older crowds. Until March 19th when the “Crema” is produced, it is possible to visit all these artistic works made of plasterboard. Our advice is that to enjoy your visit calmly and to avoid the crowds, you should go early in the morning. The rest of the day, people go to the Valencian streets to have fun and enjoy themselves in the different events that are celebrated. “La Nit del Foc,” one of our favorites, is the last castle that takes place on the 18th and 19th, resulting in a must-see spectacle. Obviously, the end of the celebration comes with the “Crema,” that will be on March 19th. The small Fallas burn around 22:00 and the larger ones start the fire show at approximately 24:00.
