Correfoc of St. Roc


FOR MORE DETAILS:

Correfoc

A correfoc is a pyrotechnic show that runs through the streets of the town. During the parade, people and the devils (the ones who carry special firecrackers used for the show) dance under the fire sparks to the music of the drums. As they make their way, participants can also find some surprises like waterfalls of sparks or strings of firecrackers that must be crossed to continue the tour. Traditionally, participants ask for water to the neighbours, who are pleased to help, in order to get wet to keep on dancing under the fire. To participate in a correfoc you should follow some basic safety precautions: wear cotton clothes (long-sleeved shirt and long trousers), cover your head with a hat or a bandana, wear comfortable shoes and always follow the instructions of the organisers. Come to join us there!
