Valencia’s most spectacular, colourful and noisy celebration is Fallas, which takes place in March every year, culminating on 19 March: the feast day of Saint Joseph. The falleros and falleras are the people who belong to their neighbourhood casal faller, spending all year preparing for the celebrations and helping to create their falla (the flammable structure filled with fireworks that will be burned on the final day). They also parade in traditional local dress. Each casal faller has a Fallera Mayor, but only one lucky fallera is selected to be the Fallera Mayor de Valencia.

If you want to find out more about the festivities, take a look at our B1 reading and listening exercise with accompanying video:
