All White? Flour Throwing in Alicante

Alicante Fools Day Fiesta

Fiesta: Day of the Innocents

An annual flour fight festival, “Els Enfarinats” has taken place in the Spanish town of Ibi in Alicante. (see the Video here)

A spoof army dressed in full uniform and other bizarre characters engaged in a boisterous battle using flour and eggs as their weapons.

The 200-year-old event takes place every year on the 28 December to coincide with the Day of the Innocents, the equivalent of April Fools’ Day.
