More than 1,000 participants are expected at this event, making it one of the largest in Spain. This is part of the “Festes de Maig” in Badalona. This year marks the 75th ‘Burning of the Devil’, part of the festivities. It reminds me of our own burning of Zozobra, part of the Fiesta de Santa Fe, which has been held every Autumn in New Mexico for the past 301 years.
