The Fireworks of the Fallas de Valencia WILL change their location for 2023 and that means they will NOT be shot from the Alameda Turia riverbed! #castillo
An Important change to the programming of the Fallas de Valencia for 2023 is that the traditional #firework displays (castillo’s) on 16th, 17th and 18th (Nit del Foc) will no longer be shot from the Paseo de la Alameda.
It is still unknown where the new location will be.
It has also been announced that mascletás will be, again, fired in different neighbourhoods around the city to decentralise the pyrotechnic acts and make it easier for the public to attend different shows.
They will be mascletás that will be shot on 4th and 11th March away from the city centre. Whilst NOT confirmed, these will most likely be the Mascletà #Nocturna
The usual mascletá, at 14hrs, in the Plaza del #Ayuntamiento de Valencia will NOT change and will continue to be held from 1st to 19th March as normal
FULL Fallas calendar to come in early February including the Pyrotechnics calendar and who’s shooting what and when!!
