The Mascleta is a concert of firecrackers.
This is a typical Valencian invention : every day, from the first of March, the Mascleta is launched at 14 o'clock at the Plaza Del Ayuntamiento (place of the town hall).
Thousands of people are coming to assist to the explosion of thousands of firecrackers during five minutes (about 800 kilos of gunpowder).
From the 16th of March, the Mascletas take place in all quarters of Valence.
The Mascletas are really usual for the Valencians ; the region has a great pyrotechnic tradition and fires, firecrackers as well as fireworks are launched at the time of each feast.
