This festival sounds amazing and I am going to be in Barcelona while its going on. Some friends and myself are concidering renting a car and heading down there but wont be able to go until the 19th. Will the festival still be going on, and will it be worth the trip? I dont think we can find any accomodation there, but the plan would be to pull a few allnighters, or sleep in the car when need be. If anyone has any insite, I would appreciate it.

Hey C. Stevenson

I'm in Valencia now. Las Fallas started today. It's definitly worth coming because it's fantastic. Every street has it's own lightings and decoration. And every night the whole of Valencia is on the street to party.
Every day they have the mascleta. These are just huge explosions on the main square (this is awesome !!!)

The last day is the 19th, so think about it. If you come on the 19th you will have only this night left.

On the other hand, the 19th is the best night and with the biggest explosions of the whole month.

As for accomodations. It's a holiday week, so everybody and everything are free or are closed. Hotels are open though.

See ya
