Carnival at Vilanova i La Geltrú
13th February - 25th February
Vilanova i La Geltrú,
Barcelona, Spain
Carnival time in Spain and every community is vying with each other to come up with something different to get the crowds in.
Well this lot have come up with a yet another variation on a theme, another food  fight in Spain.
This one involves meringue, sweets and cereal all mixed up in a sticky gooey mess.
Once everyone is washed down after the sweet fight there will be the rest of the carnival events, parades, church services, eating and drinking.
Then the burying of the sardine before the start of fasting for lent (does it ever happen?)

Vilanova i la Geltrú is one of the few places in Spain where  Franco's could not stop the people enjoying Carnival celebrations. Like Tenerife and Cadiz, Vilanova enjoyed carnivals all through the dictators reign. The Carnival we celebrate in the town is the traditional carnival that our grandparents and great-grandparents celebrated. The festival lasts from the Saturday before Maundy Thursday until Ash Wednesday, a total of 13 days
