With the arrival of the summer solstice, Alicante lives its festivities in the fullest sense of the word. Colour, powder and fire are the mainstays of a celebration in which the music literally drowns you. Although every day offers something memorable, the most outstanding events are the flower-offering to the Virgen del Remedio, the firecracker contests, known as "mascletàs", the street parades, the bull fights and, of course, the cardboard and wooden statues and monuments whose inevitable fate it is to be burnt on the night of 24th.
