It will be a long day respective a long night. Daniel Robles invites us to a delicious lunch at the Hotel Catalonia Conde De Floridablanca*.
Well strengthened for the upcoming event, we go with our international group to the nearby starting point for the upcoming grand parade of the Entierro de la Sardina. First spectators already gather at the roadside and enjoy the day.
Arriving at the destination, we are immediately struck by the huge parade cars. They are filled to the last gap with balls, T-shirts and other gimmicks.
Oversize figureheads give the wagons an individual character, usually in connection with the group name of the Sardineros.
In part, the motives of the floats are revealing, which one would rather not have expected in a strictly Catholic country. Between, the first groups gather already. These are not only dance groups, the majority of groups artistically put a specific theme into practice. The meaning of some gigantic constructions partly discloses itself only during the parade.
Little by little, it gets fuller and fuller. A military unit arrives. Further machines and constructions are brought here.
Our colleagues cannot resist climbing on one of the parade cars. With the sparse space, this is not so easy.
We do not have very much time because we have to find our seats for the grand parade.
