Rita, the Mayoress of Valencia at Mascletà in Fallas

Every day in Fallas at precisely 2.00pm there is a Mascletà, a gloriously noisy firework display that is so popular that the city population swells to watch and to listen, It is so popular it is also played live on the television and indeed, the radio!!
Valencia's larger than life Mayoress is there on the balcony each day with the Falleras and her guest to watch and then to sing the hymn of Valencia.
