Esporles Fiesta


Demons, rituals and a lot of firecrackers

It's been fiesta in Esporles, a village in Mallorca, all week. White bunting fluttered in the trees in the square, old women and children watched and took part in races and dancing, stalls sold candy floss and toys ...... all very restrained, so I wasn't expecting this on the last night! The demons, rituals, drums throbbing and fireworks held on poles by the demons who ran around with wild abandon exciting young and old alike was spectacular. Die hards wrapped up in hoodies and scarves, those who were bare skinned stood well back and watched with wonder. Next year I'm taking a scarf and getting into the thick of it. What an amazing event.
