We keep thinking how great it would be to have a festival calendar on Savor Spain that provides accurate dates and information about all the festivals in Spain. Then you come across something like the Correfoc (Catalan for “running with fire”) parade below, and even the people who live right next door have no idea what it’s about. Paco thought it was something about Easter, but he couldn’t remember.
I’ve seen lots of these festivals. In fact, my (borrowed) jacket caught on fire at one festival and my friends had to put me out. Not kidding. The Spaniards seem to really love fire, as most festivals involve some form of fireworks or burning stuff down.
So if you happen to know more about the Correfoc below, please enlighten us. (Get it? OK, sorry. I plead the flu.)
