Fiestas in early September, 2012

There are two nice fiestas coming up at the beginning of September.

In El Paso, the fiesta in honour of the Virgin of the Pine will carry on until September 2nd, when there will be a concert in town followed by a special mass, procession and public dance up at the hermitage above the town.

The Devil’s dance, Tijarafe, 2007.

In Tijarafe in the early hours of September 8th, the devil will join the dance. This is a man in a suit covered with lit fireworks, and no, I don’t think it’s entirely safe. On the other hand, I’ve never heard of any bad accidents, and it’s certainly memorable and great fun. The party starts the night before, of course, with the usual music, dancing, and mobile bars.
