At last, the big day arrives. Saturday, the most important day of the week. We hope you’ve had a good night’s sleep because the party will go on until after midnight. It begins with a parade down Alfonso X El Sabio avenue, where the sardineros and Doña Sardina give out the gifts most appreciated by adults. You can have an appetizer at one of the terraces filled with music. At night, the real Entierro de la Sardina starts. The parade is lead by carnal groups, gigantic inflatable figures, national and international entertainment groups, musical vehicles, etc. Then, the 23 sardinero groups floats follow the parade and give away millions of toys, whistles, swords and balls. After that, the sardine is lit and burns at the rhythm of the sardinero anthem. The final ending is a spectacular firework show that lights up faces of joy and happiness.
