The Wicker Man meets Guy Fawkes

Dress a few people up in red Devil outfits, give them several hundred fire spitting fireworks, turn out the street lights, and tell them to point the fireworks at anyone who comes near and you have the main elements of corre foc which I think means running with fire in Valenciano. Throw in a spectacular sort of fire storm in the Town Hall car park at the end and that's that for another year.

I came home with singed hair surrounded by the smell of burning wool overcoat!
