(See the video below) For the last few years in Hondón de las Nieves it has become a tradition during Summer Fiestas to hold both the Medieval Markets followed by the CorreFocs (Fireworks) in the main Plaza.
For a small village (like so many fiestas around here) it truly is spectacularly done on a budget. The whole of the village residents are out and about, the atmosphere is carnival with plenty to eat, drink, buy and wonder over. The finale is an explosive mix of fireworks and loud music around the village streets and ends in a showcase on the central plaza stage. It has to be seen to be believed !
But it’s not for the faint hearted and ‘Health & Safety’ is right out of the window! Here is a YouTube video of a recent Hondon Fireworks here.
