We do love the main days of Fallas, March 15th to 19th, but our favorite time are the weeks leading up to those days. There are so many things going on: parades, the Plantà, and tons of fireworks events which don't yet have huge crowds.
Yes, Fallas is a festival of fire and fireworks, but parades are equally important to the Falleras and Falleros of Valencia. At the beginning of Fallas, there are two important ones: the Cabalgata del Ninots and the Cant de l'Estoreta.
The Day of the Cridà has finally arrived! Every Valencian who is into Fallas has been waiting for this day the whole year. On the last Sunday of February, Fallas officially begins with a day packed with events to honor this special moment.
There are literally hundreds and hundreds of ninots to admire.
