First Mascleta (huge fireworks display) on Fallas 2019!

Last night was the opening night of Fallas in Valencia. That event is a mascleta, a huge fireworks display.  It is 10 minutes of non-stop of highly coordinated firework explosions resulting in various formations and figures including stars and spirals, rockets on multiple successive heights,  culminating in a vertical mascleta some 10 stories in height that is almost pure rumble, and in fact is called ‘the earthquake.”  We could feel the vibrations from across the harbor, several hundred meters away.

I do mean huge! Here it is!
