at Pl. dels Castellers (we estimate 01.30 as a finish)

Correfocs

(Catalan pronunciation: [ˌkorəˈfɔks], Western Catalan: [ˌkoreˈfɔks])

Translates in English to “fire-runs”) are an exiting and visual event in Catalan festivals.

Participants dress up as devils and light fireworks. Often held up above their heads. And dance to the drums of a traditional gralla.

Whilst the fireworks are set off among the crowd of spectators, spectators can stand well out of the line of fire!, or get involved. Being bathed in the sparks.

Normally a good wide hat and clothing is sufficient to let the embers fall off of you safely, with a good fitting around the neck or a scarf.

The brave in the  crowd line a street, close to the action and the wild run through a tunnel of fireworks. s they are set off, overhead.

There is often a more sedate kids version, but as is typical in Sitges and Catalunya, older ones often get involved and know how far to take it. We have never seen an injury.
