Fantastic fallas! 3rd day!

Today is the day that Valencia becomes impossible. All streets will be cut off, police will stand on every corner, you will have to push and shove your way through the crowds to get anywhere, and fallas will actually become meaningful to every fallero and fallera in valencia! Tears will cried, feet will be blistered but everyone will look beautiful. Today is the Ofrenda. When falleros and falleras walk miles dressed up to the nines in the traditional costumes and take flowers to the Virgen in La plaza de la virgen. Its an amazing thing to see so take yourself down to la calle de la paz, perch on the pavement and lose yourself in a mix of colours and patterns and head pieces. More concerts in the river bed for you to enjoy, berbenas and always the whiff of urine around the streets!
Enjoy! Fallas is nearly over!
