Can anyone tell me what the very loud music was through Saturday night Sunday morning. Sounded like it was coming from San Fulgencio direct

Hi,

We live in the campo between Los Palacios and San Fulgencio.  Not aware of anything in San Fulgencio last night, but fiestas started in Rojales last week (culminating in the Moors & Christians' Grand Parade next weekend) and they've had discos playing until 6am.  We're in the Vega Baja basin, but I think the sound must reverberate off Rojales hills - it sounded like they'd set up their decks in our garden!

Anyway, we should get some sleep the rest of this coming week - until Friday, when the all-night discos will be on again for the Moors & Christians' weekend! 🥴😂

UPDATE:  I was just asking hubby about this and he said it's Rojales Moors and Christians this weekend!   We've had visitors from the UK this week and I seem to have lost a whole week 🥴  So much for my quiet night in tonight - we're meeting friends there for the final parade tonight.  Still, on the bright side, we can catch up with lost sleep next weekend 👍😄

Kind regards, 

Kim

If you mean last weekend, it was Corpus Cristi and a lot of towns had parades and through the night celebrations.

It's part of Spanish life and culture and the best way is to join in with it.

I think you have to accept that you live in Spain and that it is a country which has lots of noisy fiestas, fireworks etc. Most of these are set times and well publicised, so everyone is forwarned.

On the other hand, bars etc need a music licence - which is easy enough to get - if they want to make noise at any time. Unfortunately, most don't bother and get caught out when someone complains.

Perhaps residents on urbanisations ought to get out more and enjoy the Spanish celebrations.

Over the weekend it was also the fiesta of San Fermin.   Here in Almoradí it started with noisy fireworks on Friday and finished on Sunday, with lots of noisy rockets in between.   At the end of this month we have the fiesta of San Abdon & San Senen, followed by the fiesta of the Moors & Christians.   Two weeks of fairground rides, many parades, several late/all night discos plus fireworks.   Just glad that I don’t live in the centre of town.   The main street  is usually closed because of the fairground rides on it.

Well said Ray!

This & I´m sorry to say again......I have replied before for this:

Two instances on the same night, was mentioned almost 20 years ago by an old English Lady (we called her the Lady of the mountain, has sadly, since departed).

It was an August 14th/15th midnight, with not many Brits in our town, but Spanish, mixing with a group of locals, waiting for the streets before the shop owner´s boarded-up their shutters for the inevitable annual scorch inferno, fireworks to hit the roads, windows, shops & buildings.

With, watching, two old Spanish ladies, side-stepping the youngster´s “jumping-jacks”, the (caretillas) fire-works had been planted with fuses lighted along many on the main street.

The English lady exclaimed, “It´s disgusting, the old ladies, here in Spain permitting how´s fireworks permitted, like bull fighting allowed!.”

A local Spaniard quietly heard & replied understanding English, “This in Spain, and many years ago these old ladies were throwing their own fireworks when they were young, and besides whether or not we agree with bull-fighting or not, at least when our old folk are looked after, they´re not popped off into old folk´s homes. It´s, for that reason, that concentrating on traditional values as opposed trying to apply the “law to the letter”,or nuisance problems, those in authority may concentrate on perpetrators wrongdoers & convicts aiding on their correct jailbird side of the bars. Enjoy the Spanish style.  

Bangs, fireworks, the way it used to be (UK) !

A few years ago my wife and I were taking part in an early morning Easter procession and wondered why all those behind us had moved forward and we were now at the back.

When the maceta went off about 2 metres away we realised why!

I also remember trying to beat my first traca - now I leave it to the younger ones 😊
