These festivities date again to 1850, while a collection of college students decided to shape an entourage presided over by using a sardine, symbolising fasting and abstinence, to relive the fiesta celebrated at Carnival.

 

Thirty or so "sardinero" groups make up the fun "Entierro de la Sardina" parade. These companies additionally liven up the metropolis with street leisure on the times before the parade. The night time before, the Testament of Lady Sardine is read from the balcony of the city hall. It takes a funny take a look at cutting-edge political and social troubles. The following day is the big cavalcade, which has two distinct elements: the "cabecera", with "giants and large-heads", carnival organizations and brass bands; and the floats, committed to the gods of Olympus, where lots of toys are thrown out into the group. They all accompany the sardine to the place in which it's miles burned, with a firework show and a big human beings's fiesta that lasts into the early hours.
