The Fogueras De Sant Joan is coming to an end. The craziness of the fire jumping is over and the demons have stopped chasing people with fireworks through the streets.
However, there is but one day of fiesta left in Jávea. The grand finale starts out with a parade through town in which everyone is dressed up in traditional Spanish dresses, candy is thrown to the crowds watching and marching bands entertain as the parade swirls through Jávea old town. It is a very nice event to bring your family to watch as you can sit comfortably in one of the many outdoor cafés, enjoy the beauty of the parade and have your kids thrilled with all the sweeties they will easily obtain. The parade starts at 7pm in the middle of old town.
Jávea Fireworks and Burning Statues
The final night of Fogueras De Sant Joan 2012 in Xábia reaches it climax with a massively impressive fireworks show. The fireworks are carefully choreographed to go of to the tunes of loud music filling the Plaza De La Constitucion – if you enjoy grand displays of fireworks, this one is not to be missed. The fireworks are followed by the burning of the statues. The giant artworks created in Jáveas main square are featuring political satire and commentary on life in Spain, but on this night they are all gonna burn.
As usual, the main events are followed by outdoor concerts, DJs and live music from stage. It is free to attend all the events and parking is easily available in the underground carpark under Plaza De La Constitucion ( Its the main big square up in oldtown. If you drive up the main road through old town, past the post office – then theres a big parking sign on the first possible right turn, as soon as you do you can see Constitucion 100metres ahead … follow the road for those 100m – and you are right at the slope/entrance to the underground carpark under Plaza De La Constitution)
